Aker Solutions has signed a contract with Statoil to supply control umbilicals to the Norne field located in the Northern part of the North Sea. The contract value is approximately NOK 200 million (£ 21.9 million).
The scope of work for the Fossekall-Dompap project includes a control umbilical system with a total of 26 km of dynamic and static sections. The control umbilicals provide hydraulic, electrical and fibre optic functions for three planned four-slot templates and have a 2.5 in. MEG line (mono ethylene glycol) for hydrate prevention and inhibition during shutdowns. The Norne field is located 200 km west from Sandessjøen in a water depth of 380 m and occupies blocks 6608/10 and 6608/11. The field has been developed with a production and storage off-loading ship tied to subsea templates.
“This contract signifies our leading position in the control umbilicals market. We are delighted to be awarded this fast track project from Statoil in the North Sea,” says Tove Røskaft, senior vice president of Aker Solutions' umbilical business
