The contract includes engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning (EPCIC) of new equipment.

The scope covers hook-up of a new riser, a new inlet arrangement with an electrical heater, a new inlet scrubber, a valve arrangement, revamp of gas export compressors, and modifications of the condensate train.

Aker Solutions will execute the contract from Norway with prefabrication work in Egersund, engineering, procurement and project management in Trondheim and Kristiansund and other services offshore. 

Work starts immediately and is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2023. 

“We look forward to working with OKEA on this project. Aker Solutions has a strong and dedicated team with proven experience in delivering offshore modifications, safely and with top quality. Our efficient and flexible execution model will ensure minimum interruption of the ongoing production,” said Linda Litlekalsøy Aase, executive vice president and head of Aker Solutions’ electrification, modifications and maintenance business.

The Hasselmus field is located 145 kilometers north of Kristiansund in the Norwegian Sea. It is a single well subsea development solution with tie-back to the Draugen platform. 

The news comes shortly after OKEA awarded an EPCI SURF contract to Subsea Integration Alliance for the Hasselmus project.
