Aker Solutions Scores Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 FEED

Aker Solutions has secured a front end engineering and design (FEED) contract from Statoil for the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup development offshore Norway.

The work is for a new processing platform and the bridge that will connect it to the development’s riser platform. The contract also includes the design of a module and the work to integrate this with the riser platform.

The FEED will build on experience from the development’s first phase and involve more than 250 Aker Solutions employees in Oslo and Stavanger. It will be delivered in the first quarter of 2018.

“We’ve worked closely with Statoil on significantly bringing down costs and increasing the overall efficiency of this major development,” said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions. “We’re very pleased to continue supporting our customer in driving forward this landmark industrial project.”

The new job is part of the 10-year framework engineering agreement awarded to Aker Solutions for Johan Sverdrup in 2013. The contract includes options for continued maturing of the design as well as engineering, procurement and management assistance (EPMA) work.

The contract is valued at about NOK 300 million and will be booked as part of Aker Solutions’ first-quarter order intake.

Johan Sverdrup production is slated to start in late 2019 and is predicted to last for about 50 years. The first development phase will consist of four platforms linked by bridges.

Statoil is operator for the development, which spans three licenses. Other partners include Lundin Norway, Petoro, Maersk Oil and Aker BP.
