Aibel secures $114 M work on Maria offshore field

Norwegian engineering and construction company has secured contract for work related to planned water injection from the Heidrun platform to the Maria field, in the Norwegian North Sea. The field is operated by Wintershall Norge AS. The contract is valued at NOK 860 million ($114.6 million).

Aibel will increase the water injection capacity of Heidrun and perform the tie-in of the water injection from the platform to the Maria field via a riser. The job includes various modifications necessary for the connection work. Aibel will purchase and install new SRP filter packages, upgrade existing equipment, expand the riser balcony, move a lifeboat, and upgrade the platform’s control system.

The Maria contract is a so-called EPCI contract, and therefore includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation. The project will be managed from Aibel’s Haugesund office and will involve 170 workers at its peak.

“We’re very pleased to have secured this contract in a difficult market. This shows that the changes we’ve made in our company have had a positive effect,” commented CEO Jan Skogseth.

Work will start immediately and will be completed in spring 2018. The contract was awarded by Statoil, which is responsible for the part of the Maria field related to Heidrun.

Wintershall, the operator of the Maria field, yesterday submitted the field development plan to the Norwegian authorities.
