Aker Solutions recently won a contract to deliver its longest-ever umbilicals system at the Zohr offshore gas field in the Egyptian part of the Mediterranean Sea.
The agreement with Petrobel in Egypt is worth more than NOK 1 billion and will be booked in the second quarter. It stipulates the delivery of 180 km of steel tube umbilicals that will connect the Zohr subsea development to an offshore control platform. Petrobel, a joint venture between The Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation (EGPC) and Eni, is responsible for the development and operations at Zohr.
The work will be led by Aker Solutions’ subsea division in Oslo, Norway, and manufacturing will start immediately at the umbilicals plant in Moss, Norway.
The umbilicals system will be delivered by mid-April 2017.
