Norway-based oil services provider Aker Solutions has secured a contract worth up to NOK2.7bn ($440m) to provide 25 subsea trees and six template manifolds for an oil field development in the UK North Sea.

As part of the contract, the company will also provide associated controls, diverless horizontal tie-in systems, and slim line rigid lockdown wellheads for the oil field development.

Aker will also provide template manifolds and trees that will allow the use of hydraulically submersible pumps to improve oil recovery and flow assurance.

The company said that engineering and procurement and centralised management for the project will be managed by its main office in Fornebu, Norway.

Aker’s Tranby facility outside Oslo will develop the subsea trees, while manufacturing of manifolds and system integration testing will be done at the company’s offshore yard in Egersund on the west coast of Norway.

Apart from providing lifecycle-support services, Aker’s subsea operations in Aberdeen will produce the control systems and wellheads.

Aker Solutions subsea business head Alan Brunnen said that this is the single-largest subsea contract that the company has won in the UK.
