Aker secures more hook-up and commissioning work at Johan Sverdup

Norwegian oil services company Aker Solutions, in partnership with Kvaerner, has secured additional hook-up and commissioning work for Equinor's Johan Sverdrup offshore field in the North Sea.

Norwegian oil services company Aker Solutions, in partnership with Kvaerner, has secured additional hook-up and commissioning work for Equinor’s Johan Sverdrup offshore field in the North Sea.

The scope of works under the original contract included hook-up and commissioning work of the field’s utility and living quarter platform, as well as conducting preparatory offshore work for the phase two modifications of the riser platform.

The new contract is secured by exercising an option in the original agreement signed by the associated parties in January last year.

Aker Solutions Projects EVP Knut Sandvik said: “We are delivering well and on schedule on the hook-up work that we are currently performing on the Johan Sverdrup field.

“We are excited to continue our work with Kvaerner and Equinor on Norway’s largest offshore development in the past three decades.”

The additional work at the site will be carried out under a split operation model in close collaboration with Equinor at all segments of implementation.

As well as planning, management and hook-up activities of the Johan Sverdrup utility and living quarter platform, the work plan features phase two modifications of the riser platform.

Scheduled to begin this year, the preparation work will involve a team of 40-50 people from Aker Solutions, Kvaerner, and Equinor.

The headcount of workers on the project is expected to increase to 400, working in rotation.

The utility and living quarter platform is expected to become operational in the second quarter of next year.

Headquartered in Fornebu, Norway, Aker Solutions offers oilfield products, systems and services to the oil and gas industry to improve production and recovery from the resources.

The company currently employs around 14,000 staff across 20 countries.
