Aker Solutions Wins ADNOC Umbilicals Contract
Norwegian engineering and equipment firm Aker Solutions said it has secured a NOK 700 million ($78.2 million) order from ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company) to deliver subsea umbilicals for the Dalma gas development project located offshore the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the shallow waters of the Persian Gulf.
The scope includes four steel tube umbilicals totaling more than 100 kilometers. The umbilical system will provide power supply, communication services and chemical injection fluids. It will connect the subsea equipment to three new wellhead platforms and link the topside equipment located on the offshore control platform to equipment located onshore.
"This is the first subsea umbilical award by ADNOC in the UAE and the first subsea award for Aker Solutions in the Persian Gulf," said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions.
Aker Solutions' facility in Mobile, Ala. will perform the design, engineering and manufacturing of the umbilical system. The work will start immediately and be finalized in the first quarter 2021.
