Aker Solutions awarded Troll and Askeladd subsea contracts by Statoil

Norway’s Aker Solutionshas been awarded contracts by Statoil to provide subsea production systems and services for the Troll Phase 3 and Askeladd natural-gas developments offshore Norway.
The contracts, valued at NOK1.5bn-2bbn ($190.6m-$254.3m), will see Aker deliver a subsea production system consisting of two manifolds and nine trees for Troll in the North Sea and two manifolds and four trees for Askeladd in the Barents Sea.
Luis Araujo, CEO of Aker Solutions, commented: “We look forward to working with Statoil on these fields, which are key to further developing Norway as a major gas supplier. We expect to generate significant synergies by building on our work on another major ongoing Statoil project, the delivery of the subsea production system for the Johan Castberg field in the Barents Sea.”
Work will start this month and final deliveries are scheduled for 2020.
