Aker Solutions said on Tuesday that it has won a $100 million contract from Norway’s Statoil for the work at the Johan Sverdrup field.
The deal covers the hook-up of the riser platform for the Johan Sverdrup field, Norway’s largest offshore development in the past three decades.
Norway-based Aker said it will work closely with subcontractor Kvaerner on joining together the platform’s seven modules.
The modules will be transported to Norway in the second quarter of 2018.
The scope of the contract also covers planning, management and prefabrication.
The agreement also contains hook-up options for the field’s processing and living quarter platforms that are scheduled to be installed in 2019.
The contract is worth about $109.22 million (NOK 900 million) and will be split about equally between Aker Solutions and Kvaerner.
Aker Solutions said its share will be booked in its first-quarter orders.
The work covered by the contract will start in February and will initially involve about 100 people from Aker Solutions, Kvaerner and Statoil.
The number of people working on the contract is expected to climb to as many as 1,000 at its peak next year, Aker said.
Aker said work for the contract will mainly be carried out in Stavanger and offshore.
Aker said Kvaerner will work closely with Aker and contribute to all parts of the project delivery.
“We look forward to teaming up with Kvaerner to deliver on this next milestone step and together work with Statoil to find the best possible solutions for this major development,” head of projects at Aker Solutions Knut Sandvik said.
