Scope of work includes seven production subsea trees, seven wellhead systems and seven well jumper systems, and may include some contract options.
"Our first subsea tree award was signed for Dalia in 2003 and we have successfully delivered 71 subsea tree systems to this field. We are very pleased to continue this positive relationship with Total E&P Angola and look forward to executing this project," says Alan Brunnen, executive vice president of Aker Solutions' subsea business area.
Management and engineering of the subsea tree systems will be performed at Aker Solutions' manufacturing centre in Tranby, Norway. Procurement, manufacturing and assembly will take place in Port Klang, Malaysia, and Aberdeen, UK. Equipment deliveries will be made in 2013 and 2014.
