Aker Solutions to Supply Umbilicals for Three Statoil Fields

Aker Solutions has won a contract to provide umbilicals for the Statoil-operated Johan Sverdrup, Utgard and Bauge developments, offshore Norway.

The order entails delivery of more than 40 kilometers in total of subsea umbilicals.

By combining the delivery for three separate projects into one order, we are able to boost efficiency and reduce costs for the customer,” said Luis Araujo, Aker Solutions’ chief executive officer.

“We look forward to working with Statoil on these important oil and gas developments,” he added.

Manufacturing will take place at Aker Solutions’ umbilicals plant in Moss, Norway.

Johan Sverdrup is one of the five largest oil fields on the Norwegian continental shelf. With expected resources of between 2.0—3.0 billion barrels of oil equivalents, it will also be one of the most important industrial projects in Norway in the next 50 years, Statoil said.

Utgard is a gas and condensate field on Norwegian and UK continental shelf with recoverable volumes estimated at 56 million barrels of oil equivalents. The field development includes two wells in a standard subsea concept, with one drilling target on each side of the median line.

The third field, Bauge, to be tied in to the Njord A platform, has an estimated volumes of 73 million barrels of oil equivalent. The Bauge field development concept includes one subsea template, two oil producers and one water inject.
