The work includes engineering, procurement, construction and delivery of four subsea trees, four over-trawlable subsea structures and control systems.
Alan Brunnen, executive vice president of Aker Solutions’ subsea business, says, “The Bøyla contract is another confirmation of the robust nature of our fast-track field development programme. We are working continuously to further minimise execution time, risk and cost.”
Delivered out of Aberdeen
Whilst the subsea trees’ engineering and manufacturing will be performed primarily at Aker Solution’s Tranby technology centre, the company’s headquarters at Fornebu will carry out engineering of the over-trawable structures.
The subsea control systems will be delivered out of Aberdeen in the UK, and Aker Solutions’ service base at Aagotnes will handle installation and commissioning. Final deliveries will be made in Q1 2013.
“We have a frame agreement with Marathon that dates back to 2004 and are very pleased to continue working with them on this project,” continues Mr Brunnen.
The Bøyla field is located south-west of the Alvheim field and will be tied back to the Alvheim FPSO. The water depth is approximately 120 meters.
