Aker Solutions bags first subsea umbilical order in UAE

Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) has ordered subsea umbilicals for Aker Solutions for its Dalma gas development project off UAE.

“This is the first subsea umbilical award by ADNOC in the UAE and the first subsea award for Aker Solutions in the Persian Gulf,” said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions.

The contract is valued at around NOK 700 million ($77,8 million). The scope includes four steel tube umbilicals totaling more than 100 kilometers.

The umbilical system will provide power supply, communication services, and chemical injection fluids. It will connect the subsea equipment to three new wellhead platforms and link the topside equipment located on the offshore control platform to equipment located onshore.

Aker Solutions’ facility in Mobile, Alabama in the United States will support by performing the design, engineering, and manufacturing of the umbilical system. The work will start up immediately and be finalized in the first quarter of 2021.

The order will be booked in the third quarter of 2019.
