Aker Solutions to undertake subsea engineering work for BP worldwide

BP has awarded Aker Solutions with a contract to provide subsea engineering services to its offshore infrastructure worldwide for a period of five years.

The contract includes asset integrity management and operations support and may be extended by an optional two years. The value of the deal was not disclosed.

“We are delighted to partner with BP in finding cost-effective solutions to boost productivity and optimize the infrastructure of the company’s subsea fields,” said Luis Araujo, Aker Solutions’ CEO.

“We have provided subsea operations support to BP in the UK for more than 15 years and look forward to building on this partnership with a global agreement.”

In December, Aker Solutions commenced a five-year contract to provide BP with maintenance and modifications services at its oil and gas fields offshore Norway. The deal is valued at up to NOK 3.2bn ($370m).
