Aker Solutions has received an order valued at more than NOK 1.7 billion from the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to provide the subsea production system and umbilicals for the Lingshui 17-2 gas field.
Lingshui 17-2 is CNOOC’s first subsea deepwater project located in the South China Sea, off the Hainan Province in water depths of up to 1,500 meters.
The subsea production system for the Lingshui 17-2 field consists of 11 horizontal subsea trees, four manifolds, topside and subsea control system and a vertical tie-in connection system. The work scope also includes more than 70 kilometers of static and dynamic umbilicals, linking the subsea development to a new semi-submersible platform.
“We are pleased to extend our partnership with CNOOC in China to the Lingshui gas field and leverage our global deepwater capabilities,” said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions. “Our complete offering of a subsea production system and umbilicals will enable CNOOC to reduce costs and maximize the production of the field.”
The subsea manifold will be manufactured and tested locally by China Offshore Oil Engineering Company (COOEC). The services for installation and commissioning will also be executed in China.
The global project will involve Aker Solutions’ facilities in Malaysia, Norway and the United Kingdom. The delivery for the subsea production system and umbilicals will be from the second half of 2019 to 2020.
