OSLO -- StatoilHydro has awarded Aker Solutions a $49 million contract for the delivery of a complete workover system for subsea trees at the high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) Kristin field in the Norwegian Sea.

The scope of work includes engineering, procurement, manufacturing, and testing of a complete workover intervention system, including tools.

The contract is a call-off from the frame agreement signed between StatoilHydro and Aker Solutions in 3Q 2007. The delivery is for StatoilHydro's Kristin Tool Pool & Exploration and Production North unit.

This is the third workover system Aker Solutions will be delivering to StatoilHydro's Kristin field, which is an HP/HT field with temperatures up to 180° C (356° F) and pressures up to 15,000 psi.

The workover system equipment will be engineered and manufactured out of Aker Solutions' facilities at Fornebu and Tranby, Norway.
