Aker Solutions Wins Subsea Orders for Troll and Askeladd Projects
“We look forward to working with Statoil on these fields, which are key to further developing Norway as a major gas supplier,” said Aker Solutions Chief Executive Officer Luis Araujo.
“We expect to generate significant synergies by building on our work on another major ongoing Statoil project, the delivery of the subsea production system for the Johan Castberg field in the Barents Sea.”Work on the two systems will involve facilities in Norway, Brazil, the UK and Malaysia. Initial deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2019. Aker Solutions’ facilities in Ågotnes on the west coast of Norway and Hammerfest, located on the country’s northern tip, will provide the subsea services for Troll and Askeladd. Troll, which contains about 40 percent of Norway’s offshore gas reserves, is expected to continue producing for decades to come. Askeladd is slated to come on stream after 2020, helping to further develop Norway’s newest oil and gas region in the far North. It is located about 180 kilometers from the Melkøya onshore plant, where the gas will be processed.
