Aker Solutions has secured contracts from Statoil to provide subsea production systems and services for the Troll Phase 3 and Askeladd natural-gas developments offshore Norway.
The company will deliver a subsea production system consisting of two manifolds and nine trees for the Troll development in the North Sea.
The system for Askeladd in the Barents Sea will be comprised of two manifolds and four trees. Both orders include installation and commissioning support services, Aker Solutions noted.
The contracts have a total estimated value of between NOK 1.5-2 billion and will be booked in the first quarter. Work starts this month, with final deliveries scheduled for 2020.
Work on the two systems will involve facilities in Norway, Brazil, the UK and Malaysia. Initial deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2019.
Aker Solutions’ facilities in Ågotnes on the west coast of Norway and Hammerfest, will provide the subsea services for Troll and Askeladd.
Troll, which contains about 40 percent of Norway’s offshore gas reserves, is expected to continue producing for decades to come.
Askeladd is slated to come on stream after 2020, helping to further develop Norway’s newest oil and gas region in the far North. It is located about 180 kilometers from the Melkøya onshore plant, where the gas will be processed.
