Aker Solutions has been awarded a contract from Aker BP to deliver the subsea production system for the second phase of the Ærfugl development offshore Norway.

The subsea delivery will include wellheads, vertical subsea trees, satellite structures, control systems, a tie-in module and about 30 kilometers of umbilicals.

The contract has a value of about NOK 700 million ($76 million).

The deliveries include the Vectus subsea control system and Aker Solutions’ standard, lightweight vertical subsea trees.

The work starts immediately and involves facilities in Norway, the UK, India, Malaysia and Brazil.

The subsea structures are scheduled for delivery in 2020.

Ærfugl is a gas condensate field about 210 kilometers offshore Sandnessjøen in Norway. It is connected back to the Skarv floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel operated by Aker BP.

Aker Solutions delivered the subsea production system for the first phase of the Ærfugl development, as part of the company’s subsea alliance with Aker BP and Subsea 7.
