Aker, ENI Sign Umbilicals Contract (Angola)

Aker Solutions has signed a contract with ENI for the Block 15\06 West Hub development project in the Angolan deep water region. The contract value is approximately USD 50 million (NOK 300 million).

ENI has the operatorship of Block 15\06. The West Hub development project, which is part of 15\06, is located approximately 350 kilometres northwest of Luanda and 130 kilometres west of Soyo in Angola. The West Hub consists of the main field Sangos and two additional satellite fields called Cinguvu and Ngoma.

Aker Solutions’ scope of work includes the engineering, procurement, fabrication, and supply of static and dynamic steel tube umbilicals, totalling 34 kilometres, in addition to associated equipment and hardware.

“This contract reflects our strong ambitions for West Africa and our capabilities in Angola where Aker Solutions has invested for several years. We look forward to executing this project together with the client ENI,” says Tove Røskaft, head of Aker Solutions’ umbilicals business.

The steel tube umbilicals will be manufactured and delivered out of Aker Solutions’ facility in Moss, Norway supported by project management, design and engineering in Fornebu, Norway.

Subsea umbilicals are deployed on the seabed to supply necessary controls and chemicals to subsea oil and gas wells, subsea manifolds and any subsea system requiring a remote control.

The delivery date is in the first quarter of 2014. The contract has been signed and booked as order intake in the third quarter of 2012.
