Aker Solutions Wins Hookup Contract For Johan Sverdrup
Statoil has tapped Aker Solutions for the hookup of the riser platform for the Johan Sverdrup Field.
Aker Solutions said it will work closely with subcontractor Kvaerner to join the platform’s seven modules, which will be transported to Norway in second-quarter 2018. The scope also covers planning, management and prefabrication, the company said in a news release. In addition, the agreement contains hookup options for the field’s processing and living quarter platforms, which are scheduled for installation in 2019.
The contract value is about $109 million and will be split about equally between Aker Solutions and Kvaerner, the release said. Work is scheduled to begin in February, initially involving about 100 people from Aker Solutions, Kvaerner and Statoil. That number is expected to rise to as many as 1,000 people at the project’s peak in 2018.
