FORNEBU, Norway  Petrobel has contracted Aker Solutions to deliver umbilicals for the Zohr gas field in the Egyptian part of the Mediterranean Sea.

The NOK 1-billion ($122-million) contract stipulates the delivery of 180 km (112 mi) of steel tube umbilicals that will connect the Zohr subsea development to an offshore control platform.

Petrobel, a joint venture between the Egyptian General Petroleum Corp. and Eni, is responsible for the development and operations at Zohr.

The work will be led by its subsea division in Oslo and manufacturing will start immediately at the umbilicals plant in Moss, Norway.

The umbilicals system will be delivered by mid-April 2017.

CEO Luis Araujo said: “Aker Solutions is building on its previous experience offshore Egypt to now deliver its largest-ever umbilicals project. We are very pleased to support Petrobel and Egypt on this important development.”
