Statoil awards Aker Solutions control umbilicals contract

Norweigian engineering-services provider Aker Solutions has signed a contract, valued at approximately NOK200m (£22m), with Statoil to supply control umbilicals to the Norne field located in the Northern part of the North Sea.

The scope of work for the Fossekall-Dompap project includes a control umbilical system with a total of 26km of dynamic and static sections.

The control umbilicals provide hydraulic, electrical and fibre-optic functions for three planned four-slot templates and have a 2.5in MEG line (mono ethylene glycol) for hydrate prevention and inhibition during shutdowns.

The Norne field is located 200km west from Sandessjøen in a water depth of 380m and occupies blocks 6608/10 and 6608/11.
