Aker Solutions has won contracts valued at more than £32 million to deliver power umbilical systems to Cnooc’s Liuhua oil fields off Hong Kong.

Norwegian firm Aker will provide 35 kilometers of dynamic and static power umbilicals for the Liuhua 16-2, 20-2 and 21-2 fields, linking the subsea development to a new floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.

Aker Solutions chief executive Luis Araujo said: “We are honored to work with CNOOC again to demonstrate our capabilities in China.

“Liuhua is an important project and we look forward to providing umbilicals which meet its long-distance power transmission requirements.”

Aker Solutions’ team in Malaysia will lead the engineering work, while production and manufacturing will take place at Aker Solutions’ umbilical production facility in Mobile, Alabama in the US.

Project delivery is set for the end of 2019 for Liuhua 16-2 and 20-2, and in 2020 for Liuhua 21-2.

Aker Solutions first worked on a subsea project with CNOOC in 2010, and has since provided subsea production system for Liuhua 19-5 and Yacheng 13-4 gas fields.

The order will be booked in the third quarter 2018.
