Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Kiewit-Aker Contractors, a 50/50 joint venture between Peter Kiewit Infrastructure and Aker Solutions, has been awarded a contract by ExxonMobil Canada Properties (EMCP) for the Hebron Project gravity based structure (GBS). The contract is for Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) and site preparation, with the option at ExxonMobil's discretion to subsequently provide detailed engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services. The contract value for Aker Solutions' share of the FEED and site preparation is $70m.
 
The Hebron Field is an oil and gas development in the Atlantic Ocean located 350 kilometres offshore from St. John's, in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
 
FEED will commence immediately, with site preparation at the Bull Arm fabrication yard, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, to be performed once permits are received. Aker Solutions' project management will be based in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. 
 
Aker Solutions has a long track record for offshore concrete structures, with a series of 15 concrete structures, both fixed and floating designed, constructed and installed on the Norwegian Continental shelf between 1971 and 1993.  Recent offshore concrete projects by Aker Solutions are substructures to two platforms, installed in 2005 east of Sakhalin in Russia for Sakhalin Energy, the Adriatic LNG terminal installed in 2008 outside Venice in Italy, and the Arkutun-Dagi GBS for the Sakhalin-1 project currently being constructed in Nakhodka, Russia for Exxon Neftegas Limited.
 
Aker Solutions and Peter Kiewit Infrastructure have a long history of working together, with main project references being the Hibernia GBS offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada for Hibernia Management and Development Company Ltd. (HMDC) and the White Rose Floating Production, Storage and Offloading system (FPSO) project for Husky Energy. The Kiewit-Aker Contractors joint venture was established in 2010 with a 50/50 percent ownership.
 
GBS contract parties are ExxonMobil Canada Properties and Kiewit-Aker Contractors.
