Aker Solutions Offshore Loading Systems Contracts, Brazil

Press Release
Thursday, May 26, 2011

Aker Solutions has won two similar contracts, together worth approx. 120 million NOK, from CQG Oil & Gas Contractors Inc. and CCI Oil & Gas Contractors Inc., for the supply of Pusnes offloading systems(TM) to two FPSOs in the Brazilian market.

The offloading systems will be installed on the two FPSOs P-58 and P-62, which are being converted and built for Petrobras.

The two FPSOs are spread moored FPSOs, and will use the field proven Pusnes offloading system(TM) at both bow and aft ends. These offloading systems include tanker mooring and crude oil transfer components as well as emergency offloading stations. Crude oil from the FPSOs will be loaded on to dedicated dynamic positioned shuttle tankers. Aker Solutions last year secured the mooring contracts for the same FPSOs.

The Pusnes offloading system(TM) is recognised by the industry for having established an environmentally responsible, safe and secure connection from the FPSO via a crude oil hose to the dynamic positioned shuttle tanker's bow loading system. In the event of an emergency, the oil flow can be quickly stopped and the vessels disconnected rapidly and safely.

"Aker Solutions' mooring and loading systems have attained a unique position in Brazil. We have signed more than a dozen contracts for various clients in Brazil," says Leif Haukom, head of Aker Solutions' mooring and loading systems business.

As previously communicated, Aker Solutions is also supplying Pusnes mooring systems(TM) to P-58 and P-62, under the terms of a contract with Petrobras.

Aker Solutions is focusing on the Brazilian market with a wide range of offshore technologies and is expanding the local Lifecycle service organisation in parallel with making new sales.
