Aker Solutions Wins $100m Gorgon Contract
29 March 2010Chevron has awarded Norwegian company Aker Solutions a $100 million contract to supply subsea umbilicals and associated equipment to the massive Gorgon gas project.
The engineering company said it will supply 264km of steel tube umbilicals to Gorgon which will connect the project's subsea production system to an offshore liquefied natural gas plant on Barrow Island.
"This is one of the largest umbilical contracts ever awarded," Aker Solutions senior vice president for umbilicals Tove Roeskaft said.
"Australia has several large offshore developments coming up and this contract will allow us to demonstrate the robustness and quality of our product, which will help position us for future work in this part of the world. We will work hard to grab that opportunity."
Engineering of the umbilicals will be managed out of Aker Solutions' facilities in Oslo, Norway, and Perth, Western Australia.
The steel tube umbilicals will be manufactured at Aker Solutions' facility in Moss, Norway. Final deliveries will be made in Q2 2012.
