OSLO -- StatoilHydro has exercised the Phase 3 option for modification of the Statfjord B&C topsides with Aker Solutions. The option represents a continuation of the Statfjord Latelife project currently executed by Aker Solutions.
Aker Solutions was awarded the Statfjord Latelife contract in April 2005, covering topside modification of the Statfjord B and C platforms for conversion from oil production to production of the gas re-injected throughout the oil production period.
Phase 3 covers installation of electrical submerged pumps, replacement of flowlines, re-completion of wells, and gas lift facilities. Additional scope might be called off under the option, the company says.
Project completion is scheduled for 2011.
