Norwegian engineering firm Aker Solutions has entered a Nkr210m ($35m) contract with Marathon Oil Norge to supply a subsea production system for the operator’s Boyla project on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The Boyla field, which is located south-west of the Alvheim field, will be tied back to the Alvheim FPSO in a water depth of 120m.

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

The Aker Solutions contract party is Aker Subsea.

Aker Solutions Subsea executive vice-president Alan Brunnen said the contract is another confirmation of the robust nature of the firm’s fast-track field development programme.

"We are working continuously to further minimise execution time, risk and cost, and this award reflects the programme’s competitiveness," said Brunnen.

The engineering and manufacturing of the subsea trees will be primarily performed at Aker Solutions’ technology centre at Tranby, Norway.

Engineering of the over-trawlable structures will be carried out at Aker Solutions’ headquarters in Fornebu, Norway, while the subsea control systems will come from Aberdeen, UK.

Installation and commissioning will be handled by Aker Solutions’ service base at Aagotnes, Norway.

The final deliveries will be made in the first quarter of 2013.
