Equinor, formerly Statoil, has awarded Aker Solutions a £91million for the supply of a module for the Troll A platform.
The engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract is Aker’s latest award for work at phase three of the Troll development.
The module will receive and process gas from the Troll West field, before it is piped to the onshore Kollsnes gas processing facility near Bergen, Norway.
At peak the contract will provide work for as many as 500 employees in Bergen, Egersund and offshore Norway and in Mumbai, India. The contract will be booked in the second quarter.
The Troll field, located about 65 kilometers west of Kollsnes, contains about 40% of Norway’s offshore gas reserves. Production from the field is expected to continue beyond 2050.
Aker chief executive Luis Araujo said: “We’re delighted to extend our work at Troll, a field that will help maintain Norway as a major gas exporter for decades to come.
“Working on these two significant sections of the development allows us to bring efficiencies across the project,” he added.
