Aker Solutions to Deliver Umbilicals for Total’s Girassol Project (Angola)

Aker Solutions has been awarded a contract from Technip to deliver umbilicals for the Girassol Resources Initiative (GirRI) phase 2 development off the coast of Angola. Contract value is undisclosed.

Aker Solutions will deliver two dynamic power and control steel tube umbilicals, one dynamic power cable and ancillary equipment.

GirRI, operated by the French oil giant Total, is located in Angola’s Block 17, 210 kilometres west of Luanda. The development is 1,300 metres under sea level.

“Our advanced umbilical design provides both reliability and durability and we look forward to executing this project in close collaboration with Technip,” says Tom Munkejord, head of Aker Solutions’ umbilical business area.

The umbilicals will be manufactured at Aker Solutions’ facility in Moss, Norway, with project management, design and engineering support from the company’s office at Fornebu, Norway.

Subsea umbilicals are deployed on the seabed to supply necessary controls and chemicals to subsea oil and gas wells, subsea manifolds and any subsea systems requiring remote control.

The contract has been booked as order intake in the first quarter of 2013.
