Aker Solutions awarded subsea contracts from Petronas for offshore Malaysia
Aker Solutions, through its subsidiary in Malaysia - Aker Process Systems Asia Pacific (APSAP), has been awarded two subsea contracts from PETRONAS Carigali Sdn Bhd (PETRONAS Carigali). The first is a work order to supply subsea production system and services for the Kanowit field, while the second is a contract to deliver 5600 meters of subsea umbilicals that tie back the Kanowit subsea wells to the Kumang Cluster, Offshore Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia.
The engineering, procurement and construction work order is valued at about $45 million USD. This work order is the result of the frame agreement signed between APSAP and PETRONAS Carigali back in 2009 for the supply of a complete subsea production system and services for a period of three years or until the completion of the Kanowit project.
Under the scope of work for this work order, APSAP will complete the engineering and delivery of a subsea production system consisting of two subsea trees, wellheads, subsea control system, manifold with high integrity pressure protection system, pipeline-end manifold and all tie-in equipment. APSAP will utilize Aker Solutions' high-tech manufacturing center in the Port Klang Free Zone to deliver the project and the equipment. Delivery of the subsea hardware is scheduled for 2011.
Meanwhile, the second contract with an estimated value of RM17 million (USD 5 million) will cover project management, engineering, procurement and manufacturing of subsea steel tube umbilical and auxiliary equipment.
The subsea umbilical, which contains steel tubes and electric cable, will connect the host platform to the Kanowit subsea field.
APSAP will be delivering the contract out of Aker Solutions' purposed-built subsea umbilical facility in Moss, Norway. Delivery is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2011.
