Aker Solutions wins China subsea contract

Norway’s Aker Solutions has been awarded a NOK1.7bn ($205m) order from China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to provide the subsea production system and umbilicals for the Lingshui 17-2 gas field.

The subsea production system for the Lingshui 17-2 field consists of 11 horizontal subsea trees, four manifolds, topside and subsea control system and a vertical tie-in connection system. The work scope also includes more than 70 kilometers of static and dynamic umbilicals, linking the subsea development to a new, semisubmersible platform.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with CNOOC in China to the Lingshui gas field and leverage our global deepwater capabilities. Our complete offering of a subsea production system and umbilicals will enable CNOOC to reduce costs and maximize the production of the field,” said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions.

The order will be booked in the fourth quarter of 2018.
