Aker Solutions has secured a £120million contract for work on the Mariner oilfield development in the UK North Sea.
The agreement will see the company provide engineering, construction and commissioning services during the development’s hook-up phase.
Aker will carry out the work on behalf of Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering on the development.
The deal comes in addition to a five-year maintenance and modification service contract awarded by Statoil in June.
It said at the peak of the offshore phase, the contract could secure as many as 950 jobs in the UK.
Tore Sjursen, head of Aker Solutions’ maintenance, modifications and operations (MMO) business said: “We are very pleased to be expanding our already significant role in developing the Mariner field and to be working with Daewoo and Statoil.
“This is a testament to the strength and know-how of our UK operations.”
The work will be managed by Aker Solutions’ UK MMO unit through an integrated construction and completions (ICC) organisation with Daewoo and Statoil.
The company’s Norwegian MMO unit has also secured a two-year contract extension worth NOK 360 million for the asset integrity management work at 11 offshore and three onshore locations in Norway.
The extension is part of a four-year contract awarded in 2010 by Statoil.
