Aker Solutions gains Norwegian offshore contract from Shell


Aker Solutions has secured a brownfield modifications services and maintenance support contract from Shell for the Nyhamna and Draugen facilities in Norway. 

The contract carries a period of four years and can be extended by up to seven.

Aker Solutions CEO Luis Araujo said: “We're delighted that Shell has once again selected Aker Solutions to be its main contractor for these assets and we look forward to building on our past work together to ensure the continued success of these projects.”

The contract covers the offshore Draugen oil platform and the onshore Nyhamna natural gas processing plant in Aukra, which is connected to the Ormen Lange field in the Norwegian Sea.

Earlier, Aker Solutions was contracted to provide equipment and services to these assets.

The new contract will involve Aker Solutions' west coast operations, particularly its Kristiansund division.

"The contract covers the offshore Draugen oil platform and the onshore Nyhamna natural gas processing plant in Aukra."

The companies have agreed to not disclose the framework agreement's financial terms.

In June, the company secured the contract to provide three steel tube umbilicals and associated equipment to Eni’s Coral South project, offshore Mozambique. 

Discovered in 2012, the Coral South project is estimated to host nearly 450 billion cubic metres of natural gas.

Aker Solutions specialises in providing various equipment, systems and services to the oil and gas industry and operates in nearly 20 countries and 55 locations.
