GALLERY: Aker Solutions loads out Kaombo subsea trees

Norwegian oil services company Aker Solutions has loaded out seven vertical subsea trees set for Total’s Angola Block 32.

Aker Solutions said via social media on Monday that the loadout was conducted at the company’s Port Klang facility in Malaysia.

According to the company, the trees are heading to its Sonils base in Luanda to be retested before installation at the giant deepwater Kaombo oil field.

During peak work on the project, around 500 people worked at Port Klang. Aker Solutions also said that it built more than 20 trees at the facility, which is a major location for Kaombo subsea work.

In recent news regarding the project, TechnipFMC has supplied the umbilicals system for the project. The company was in charge of the project management, engineering, and manufacturing of over 135 kilometers of steel tube umbilicals.

Also, ALP Maritime Services was selected by Interoil and Saipem in late February to provide a spread of five vessels to tow the FPSO for the Kaombo project from South East Asia to West Africa.

As for Kaombo, it is a development located on Block 32, approximately 140 kilometers off the coast of Angola, operated by Total E&P Angola.

The project will develop six of the 12 discoveries already made on Block 32 offshore Angola. The six fields (Gengibre, Gindungo, Caril, Canela, Mostarda, and Louro) cover an area of 800 km2 in the central and southeast part of the block will be connected via 300 km of subsea pipelines to two FPSO units, Kaombo Norte and Kaombo Sul.
