Total Offshore Congo Contract for Aker Solutions

Press Release
Monday, March 25, 2013

Aker Solutions receives a Letter of Award from Total for the delivery of a subsea production system for the Moho Nord project in the Republic of the Congo.

The Moho Nord project, located approximately 75 km off the coast of the Republic of the Congo, consists of the two developments Moho Nord and Moho Bilondo 1bis. Aker Solutions and Total will run both developments as one integrated project.  
 
Scope of work within the contract includes the delivery of 28 vertical subsea trees including wellhead systems, 2 installation and workover control systems, 7 manifold structures, subsea control and tie-in systems. The contract also contains options related to Moho Nord which Total may exercise.
 
"This is a major contract award for Aker Solutions. We are investing and growing internationally and Aker Solutions is committed to developing the oil and gas industry in the Republic of the Congo through knowledge sharing and local content," says Alan Brunnen, head of Aker Solutions' subsea business area.
 
The project with a contract value of NOK 4.9 billion (USD 850 million),  will utilise Aker Solutions' new vertical tree technology. The workover technology has been developed as part of the Skandi Aker/Tulip project for Total.
 
Management, engineering and procurement will primarily be performed at Aker Solutions' headquarters in Fornebu, Norway. The subsea trees and the workover systems will be manufactured at the Tranby manufacturing centre, outside Oslo. The production of the manifolds will be carried out at Aker Solutions' facility in Egersund on the west coast of Norway, while the facility in Aberdeen in the UK will deliver the control systems and the wellheads.
 
Moho Nord and Moho Bilondo 1bis are part of the Moho-Bilondo oil field which was commissioned in April 2008 for commercial production. It is the first deepwater offshore field of the Republic of the Congo at water depths ranging between 600 to 1050 metres.

Aker Solutions will also establish a service base together with Total in Pointe Noire which is the second largest city in the Republic of the Congo. Aker Solutions and Total expect that 40 people will be employed at the base.  
 
The first deliveries of the Moho subsea production system will be made in the second quarter of 2014.
