Offshore staff

FORNEBU, Norway – Statoil has contracted Aker Solutions to provide a concept study for an FPSO facility for the Johan Castberg oil field development in the Barents Sea.

The order is a call-off by Statoil on an engineering contract for the field development won by Aker Solutions in 2013. The value of the contract was not disclosed.

The Johan Castberg field is located about 240 km (149 mi) northwest of Hammerfest, northern Norway.

Per Harald Kongelf, head of Aker Solutions’ Norwegian operation, said: “We’ve worked with Statoil for two years on finding a cost-effective solution that will enable development of this strategically important oil field in northern Norway. The costs have been significantly reduced and we look forward to continuing to work with Statoil to optimize this development.”
