Aker Solutions has won orders valued at more than NOK 350 million ($41.5 million) to deliver power umbilical systems to China National Offshore Oil Corporation’s (CNOOC) Liuhua oil fields in the South China Sea.

The work scope includes more than 35 kilometers of dynamic and static power umbilicals for the Liuhua 16-2, 20-2 and 21-2 fields, linking the subsea development to a new floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.

Power umbilical systems are bundled cable and fiber optic systems providing distribution of power, control and communication between subsea equipment on the seafloor and platforms or floating production facilities. The static section of the Liuhua 16-2 umbilical will be engineered using Aker Solutions’ manufacturing process called OsciLay.

The global project will involve Aker Solutions facilities around the world. Aker Solutions’ team in Malaysia will lead the engineering work, while production and manufacturing will take place at Aker Solutions’ umbilical production facility in Mobile, Alabama in the United States.

Project delivery is set for the end of 2019 for Liuhua 16-2 and 20-2, and in 2020 for Liuhua 21-2.
