Aker Solutions to supply subsea system to Marathon Oil

Aker Solutions has signed a contract with Marathon Oil Norge AS to supply a subsea production system for the operator's Bøyla project on the Norwegian continental shelf. Contract value is approximately NOK 210 million.

Scope of work includes engineering, procurement, construction and delivery of four subsea trees, four over-trawlable subsea structures and control systems.

The Bøyla field is located south-west of the Alvheim field and will be tied back to the Alvheim FPSO. The water depth is approximately 120 m.

"The Bøyla contract is another confirmation of the robust nature of our fast-track field development programme. We are working continuously to further minimise execution time, risk and cost. This award reflects the programme's competitiveness. We have a frame agreement with Marathon that dates back to 2004 and are very pleased to continue working with them on this project," said Alan Brunnen, executive vice president of Aker Solutions' subsea business.

Final deliveries will be made in Q1 2013.
