Aker Solutions partners with Beerenberg for Johan Sverdrup hook-up work
- Business & Finance
Norwegian oilfield services company Beerenberg has won a hook-up contract with Aker Solutions worth NOK 200 million ($23.4 million) plus options for two installations on the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea.
Beerenberg said on Wednesday that the agreement with Aker Solutions was signed on Friday, April 7.
The company added that the engineering and planning work would begin shortly in Stavanger. The offshore hook-up phase is scheduled to be implemented in 2018 and 2019.
Beerenberg’s scope of work will include scaffolding, rope access, surface treatment, passive fire protection, insulation, and other related services.
To remind, the operator of the Johan Sverdrup field, Statoil, awarded contracts in January for the hook-up and commissioning work on the giant field to three Norwegian companies – Aker Solutions, Aibel, and Kvaerner.
More precisely, the contracts were given to Aibel and Aker Solutions, but Kvaerner would formally operate as a subcontractor to Aker on a contract which would bring the two companies approximately NOK 900 million ($108.2 million), split evenly between the two.
The contract given to Aker includes an option for setting up and commissioning of the processing platform and living quarters platform in 2019. Beerenberg will work on the Johan Sverdrup as a part of that deal.
Morten Walde, CEO of Beerenberg, said: “We are very pleased that Aker Solutions has chosen Beerenberg as a partner for this project. This is a very exciting and challenging project, and can potentially involve all Beerenberg services.”
