The oilfield services contractor said the scope of the works would include engineering, procurement, construction and delivery of four subsea trees, four over-trawlable subsea structures and control systems.

The Boyla field, which is located south-west of the Alvheim field, will be tied back to the Alvheim FPSO. The water depth is around 120 metres.

Aker Subsea executive vice president Alan Brunnen said the contract win was another endorsement of the companyís fast-track field development capabilities.

Final deliveries are due to be made within a year on the project, which is to be split between four of Akerís bases in Norway and its Aberdeen centre, according to the company.

Engineering and manufacturing of the subsea trees will be carried out in Tranby, while engineering of the over-trawlable structures will be done in Fornebu. The subsea control systems will be delivered from Aberdeen, while installation and commissioning will be handled at Aagotnes.
