OSLO -- The Gassled Joint Venture has awarded Aker Solutions a $218 million EPC contract to modify and develop the gas plant at Kollsnes on the west coast of Norway. The plant processes natural gas from Troll, Kvitebjørn, and Visund fields in the North Sea. Engineering and procurement will start immediately, and the work will be completed by the end of December 2011, Aker says.
The fabrication work will be carried out at Aker Solutions yard at Stord, while the engineering and procurement will take place in Oslo. Most of the fabrication work at Stord and all the installation work at Kollsnes will be performed in 2010 and 2011.
