Aker Solutions has signed a contract with Maersk FPSOs to perform the mooring installation work at the Peregrino field, offshore Brazil.
The scope of work comprises planning and installation of an APL submerged turret production (STP) buoy with mooring system.
The Peregrino oil field is located 85km offshore Brazil in the south-west part of the Campos basin area. The water depth is 100m. The operator of the field is StatoilHydro.
"The Brazilian market is fast growing and there is a huge potential for the type of services we can offer through our highly experienced marine operations team," Aker Solutions executive vice-president Mads Andersen said.
Operations are scheduled to take place in the fourth quarter of 2009.
