Aker Solutions has won a NOK900million deal with DEA Norge.
The two-year deal will see the service firm deliver the subsea production system, maintenance and services for the Dvalin natural gas development offshore Norway.
“Dvalin is DEA’s first development as an operator in Norway and we look forward to working together to sustainably maximize the full potential of this field,” said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions.
The first order is for a production system includes a manifold, four subsea trees and a 15-kilometer long umbilical which will connect to the adjacent Heidrun platform. It also covers wellheads, controls, tie-in and workover systems and options for further subsea production tie-back connections to Heidrun. Initial deliveries are slated for the first half of 2018.
Aker’s team in Aberdeen will provide the control systems, however, the bulk of the work will be carried out in Norway.
The Dvalin field, previously known as Zidane, is being developed as a subsea tieback to the adjacent Heidrun platform in the Norwegian Sea. Its gas will be transported via Heidrun through the Polarled pipeline to the Nyhavna processing plant before being sent to the European market.
The pair also agreed a five-year framework deal maintenance and servicing of all subsea production systems. The contract can be extended by three-year periods.
