Aker Solutions: Seventh Drilling Equipment Package to Brazil

(Press Release)
Friday, December 21, 2012

Aker Solutions has won a contract to supply a complete drilling equipment package for a deepwater drillship Jurong Shipyard is building for the Brazilian market. The contract value is undisclosed.


Earlier this year Aker Solutions announced a contract to supply six drilling equipment packages to Jurong Shipyard. The contract included an option for an additional drilling package, which the customer now has exercised. The contract includes complete topside and subsea equipment (drilling riser and blow-out preventer).
The equipment will be delivered from Aker Solutions in Norway, Germany and Brazil. Aker Solutions is building a new $100m service and manufacturing facility in Macaé, Brazil's offshore capital, in order to meet expected growth.


The drilling unit will be the second of seven vessels to be delivered by Jurong. The contract includes project management, engineering, topside equipment, subsea package including Aker Solutions' Clip riser, and commissioning of the rigs at Jurong's yard in Brazil.
"We look forward to continuing the good, long-term collaboration with Jurong Shipyard and the drilling contractors on this project," says Thor Arne Håverstad, head of Aker Solutions' drilling technologies business.

Brazil
Between 20 and 50 per cent of the deliveries will be sourced and produced in Brazil, where Aker Solutions has had a strong presence since the 1990s. Today, more than 35 drilling units operate in Brazilian waters, using drilling equipment from Aker Solutions. The company also delivers subsea equipment, process systems and subsea intervention services locally to offshore operators in Brazil.


The new 335 000 m2 drilling equipment site in Macaé will be Aker Solutions' fourth facility in Brazil, in addition to sites in Rio das Ostras, Curitiba and Rio de Janeiro.


Aker Solutions offers complete drilling equipment packages, including project management, engineering, procurement and commissioning. The company provides the full range of topside drilling equipment and systems, and worldwide customer support through a global drilling lifecycle services organisation.
