The scope of work includes the project management, design, engineering, and manufacturing of two electro/hydraulic dynamic production umbilicals, two gas lift dynamic umbilicals, three electro/hydraulic infield umbilicals and one gas lift infield umbilical, including all associated ancillary equipment required for installation and interface with the existing development. These umbilicals will utilise the patented Aker Solutions PVC profile matrix, which provides both predictable estimates of fatigue and friction, and improved crush and impact resistance.
"This contract award is an excellent step towards our goal of supplying equipment for Anadarko across many product lines, including umbilicals," says Tove Røskaft, executive vice president of Aker Solutions' umbilicals business area.
Management, engineering and manufacturing of the umbilicals will be performed at Aker Solutions' facility in Mobile, Alabama.
