Aker Solutions’ maintenance, modifications and operations (MMO) business in Norway secured a contract from Statoil for preliminary engineering work to enable a tie-in of the Utgard gas and condensate field to the Sleipner facilities in the North Sea.
The work involves preliminary engineering for platform modifications at Sleipner to tie in the Utgard subsea field. Statoil may also exercise an option in the contract for engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) services for the platform modifications, which will be decided on later this year by the development’s license partners.
‘This builds on the strengths of our operations in Norway and our expertise in complex modifications,’ said Per Harald Kongelf, head of Aker Solutions’ Norwegian operations. ‘We are pleased to be working further with Statoil on this important field development to secure crucial resources.’
The work will be managed and executed by Aker Solutions’ MMO unit in Stavanger. It builds on a series of modification projects that Aker Solutions has carried out for Statoil at Sleipner over the past five years.
‘We are continually working on delivering the most cost-effective and efficient solutions for our customers,’ said Knut Sandvik, head of Aker Solutions’ MMO operations. ‘This award confirms that we are on the right track.’
