Offshore staff

FORNEBU, Norway – Aker Solutions and Total have signed a four-year technical collaboration agreement to develop new cost-effective subsea oil and gas field technology.

This year the partnership will explore further evolution of subsea processing and compression systems to boost cost-efficiency of deepwater gas production, development of electric subsea controls, and optimization of flow-measurement technologies. Further scope of the collaboration will be defined over the next months.

Hervé Valla, chief technology officer at Aker Solutions, said: “This joint effort reinforces our common interest in finding more effective solutions to maximize value from subsea field developments. It allows us to work more closely with Total to solve technical challenges faced by the industry today and to reduce the time needed to bring subsea technology to the market.”

The companies have worked together on the Kaombo and Dalia developments offshore Angola and Moho Nord offshore Congo-Brazzaville. In addition, they have collaborated on subsea boosting solutions and subsea plant for deepwater application as part of Total’s deep offshore research and development program.
