Aker Solutions is to provide the engineering, procurement and construction of a subsea production system for Statoil’s Fossekall-Dompap project on the Norwegian Continental Shelf for Nkr1bn ($178.7m).

As outlined in a letter of intent, the firm will provide three template-manifold structures, 11 subsea trees, a control system and a tie-in system.

There are also several options for other field developments on the Norwegian Continental Shelf that Statoil may exercise.

“We are honoured to be so deeply involved in this innovative fast track project,” said Aker Solutions’ subsea business area executive vice-president Mads Andersen. “Our goal is to deliver optimum standardised technologies in order to satisfy our customers’ requirements. We look forward to working with Statoil on these new frontiers, which offers further growth potential opportunities.”

The subsea production system will be built and worked on at Aker Solutions’ headquarters in Oslo, Norway.

Aker is expected to perform the final deliveries in the second quarter of 2013.

Fossekall-Dompap project is located north of the Norne field, 200km west of Sandessjoen, and occupies blocks 6608 / 10 and 6608 / 11 in a water depth of 380m.
