Aker Solutions in Pil & Bue FEED

Aker Solutions has secured a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract from VNG Norge for the Pil & Bue development in the Norwegian Sea.

The FEED is for the subsea production system that will be used in a tieback of Pil & Bue to the Njord A platform.

It will compete against a design from another company and the company with the winning design will in the fourth quarter of this year be awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract for Pil & Bue, Aker Solutions explained.

“We are very pleased to work with VNG to optimize the subsea field architecture for this development,” said Svenn Ivar Fure, head of Aker Solutions’ front end delivery center. “We look forward to demonstrating our capabilities and capacity to tie the Pil & Bue development back to the Njord platform.”

Pil & Bue are located in the licence PL586 in the Norwegian Sea.

VNG is the operator of Pil & Bue with 30% interest. Other partners in the license are Spike Exploration Holding with 30%, Faroe Petroleum Norge holding 25%, and Pure E&P Norway 15% stake.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
