(EnergyAsia, October 30, Thursday) — Aker Solutions, the international oil and gas engineering services company, said it has been awarded a five-year supply agreement by Malaysia’s Sarawak Shell Berhad (SSB) to supply subsea production systems equipment and services.
SSB has several existing platforms off the coast of Sarawak state as PSC operator to Malaysian state oil and gas firm Petronas which has teamed up with subsidiary Carigali and Nippon Oil Exploration (M) Ltd. The subsea wells are found in water depths of up to 200 metres.
“This supply agreement is a significant milestone for us as it is our first collaboration with Shell in this country. It is also an important recognition from one of the world’s major oil and gas companies to our Malaysian operation and unique manufacturing centre,” said president of Aker Solutions in Malaysia, Egil Martinussen. “The potential in the Sarawak area is big, and we look forward to working with SSB to develop it further over the coming years.”
The scope of work for the five-year supply agreement includes design, manufacturing, testing, installation, commissioning, follow-on support and maintenance of wellheads, subsea trees, subsea controls, flow bases and tie-in equipment.
The manufacturing and testing of all equipment will take place at Aker Solutions’ hi-tech subsea manufacturing centre in Malaysia’s Port Klang Free Zone. The contract party is Aker Solutions Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.
Malaysia is the operation headquarters for Aker Solutions in Asia Pacific, which provides complete subsea manufacturing services, project management and administrative support services.
