Aker Solutions secures oil terminal contract from Statoil

Aker Solutions has won a contract from Statoil to build the pipeline facilities, modifications and tie-ins needed at the Mongstad terminal to receive oil from the North Sea Johan Sverdrup field.

The contract, valued at about NOK350m ($43m), is for engineering, procurement, construction and installation services. The work will be completed in 2019.

The pipeline receiving facilities will be constructed in an available area at the Mongstad complex on the west coast of Norway and will be tied in to all required utilities and control and safety systems.

“We are pleased to work with Statoil in laying yet another one of the key building blocks for the major Johan Sverdrup development,” said Knut Sandvik, head of Aker Solutions’ maintenance, modifications and operations business.

The project will employ about 50 people with an expected peak of almost 100 in mid-2017.
