Aker Solutions has received a contract from Murphy Sabah Oil to supply a subsea production system for the Siakap North – Petai deepwater development located offshore of Sabah, Malaysia.

The value of the contract has not been disclosed. The company will supply 13 subsea trees, eight manifolds, well jumpers, engineering services for topside controls and lifecycle support services.

Dave Hutchinson, Aker Solutions president of subsea business for the Asia Pacific region, said the company has worked with Murphy Sabah Oil over the last couple of years and is pleased to be selected as subsea partner for this "important contract".

"Malaysia’s oil and gas industry is a key market for Aker Solutions, and we are well positioned in the Asia Pacific region with a strong manufacturing capacity and dedicated workforce," said Hutchinson.

Aker Solutions’ subsea production system will be tied back to Murphy’s Kikeh floating production storage and offloading vessel.

Delivery of the hardware equipment from Aker Solutions’ subsea manufacturing centre in Port Klang, Malaysia, is scheduled for the first quarter of 2013.
