Aker Solutions, the Norwegian global oil and gas service provider, has won an order to deliver its largest-ever umbilicals project for the Zohr gas field in Egypt, the company informed in a press release on its website.
World Oil further reported that the binding agreement with Egypt’s Petrobel is worth more than $122m. The contract stipulates the delivery of 180 km of steel tube umbilicals that will connect the Zohr subsea development with an offshore control platform by mid-April 2017, according to Offshore Magazine.
The work will be led by Aker Solution’s subsea division in Oslo and the manufacturing will take place at the umbilicals plant in Moss, Norway.
Aker Solutions’ CEO, Luis Araujo, was quoted by Nasdaq as saying: “Aker Solutions is building on its previous experience offshore Egypt to now deliver its largest-ever umbilicals project.”
Petrobel, a joint venture between EGPC and Eni, is the company in charge of developments and operations at the Zohr offshore gas field.
