Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway -- Statoil has contracted Aker Solutions MMO for topsides modifications to increase oil recovery at the Gullfaks South complex in the Norwegian North Sea.

This is connected to the tie-in of two new templates at Gullfaks South to the Gullfaks A platform. Additionally, Aker will perform topsides modification for re-routing production from the existing template D from Gullfaks A to Gullfaks C.

Estimated value of the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning assistance (EPCIc) contract is $32 million.

Aker’s maintenance, modifications and operations team in Bergen, Norway, will manage the program, with pre-fabrication performed at fabrications facilities nearby in Aagotnes. The work should be completed by end-2014.
