“This is the first subsea umbilical award by ADNOC in the UAE and the first subsea award for Aker Solutions in the Persian Gulf,” said Luis Araujo, CEO of Aker Solutions.
The scope of the NOK700-million ($78-million) award includes four steel tube umbilicals totaling more than 100 km (62 mi).
The umbilical system will supply power, communication services and chemical injection fluids. It will connect the subsea equipment to three new wellhead platforms and link the topsides facilities on the offshore control platform to equipment located onshore.
Aker Solutions’ plant in Mobile, Alabama, will undertake design, engineering and manufacturing of the umbilical system, with the work due to finish in early 2021.
