OSLO, Norway – Lundin Norway has awarded Aker Subsea a NOK-700 million ($123.9 million) EPC contract for a subsea production system for the Brynhild project in the Norwegian North Sea.
The scope of work includes one template-manifold structure, one riser base, three subsea trees, three wellhead systems, a control system, a tie-in system, 38 km (23.6 mi) of umbilicals, an HP riser and rental tooling.
There are also options for additional equipment, including other field developments.
Brynhild is northwest of the Ula field and 38 km (24 mi) east of the Pierce in UK waters, in 80 m (262 ft) water depth. It will be developed as a fasttrack subsea tieback to the Pierce FPSO.
Engineering and procurement of the subsea production system will be conducted mainly at Aker Solutions' headquarters in Oslo.
Fabrication of the subsea trees will be completed at Aker Solutions' manufacturing center in Tranby, Norway, while the company’s yard in Egersund will handle the template-manifolds.
The umbilical will be manufactured in Moss, Norway, and the control and wellhead systems in Aberdeen, UK.
Aker Solution's service base in Aagotnes, Norway, will handle the installations, with final deliveries scheduled for spring 2013.
