  • Aker Solutions awards Marulk tie-in to Norne in Mid Norway

    Statoil has awarded to Aker Solutions Marulk tie-in to the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel Norne. Aker Solutions estimates the value of the work to be about NOK 120 million. "This award falls within our core business and strategic objective of pursuing more advanced and complex modification projects in addition to the smaller modifications included in the frame agreements recently awarded by Statoil. It also confirms our position as a strong service provider within the modification business in Mid Norway", says Stian Vemmestad, president of maintenance, modifications and operations in Aker Solutions. Aker Solutions is currently working on many projects to exploit the capacity of existing infrastructure to bring in new and smaller fields. Marulk tie-in to Norne falls in to line of a series of tie-in projects connected to Norne FPSO. The Marulk field is located in the Norwegian Sea approximately 30 kilometers southwest of the Norne field at a water depth of 365 meters in the PL122. The initial development will consist of two wells tied back to the Norne FPSO, the northernmost production facility on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).
