Aker Solutions has revealed that it recently won a contract from Statoil. Under the contract, Aker is set to build pipeline facilities, modifications and tieins at the Mongstad terminal. This will allow the terminal to receive oil from the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea.

The contract is valued at approximately NOK 350 million and will consist of for engineering, procurement, construction and installation services. The pipeline receiving facilities will be constructed in an available area at the Mongstad complex on the west coast of Norway. They will be tied in to all required utilities, control and safety systems. The facilities will be connected to the six existing oil caverns through a new manifold system, which will allow Johan Sverdrup crude to be distributed to any of the caverns on the site.

The contract also includes ground and foundation work. Aker Solutions will carry out the engineering and prefabrication at its yard in Egersund. Local companies will also be involved during the installation phase. Aker Solutions’ partners will also handle the groundwork. All of the work is expected to be complete in 2019.

On average, the project will employ about 50 people, with an expected peak of almost 100 in mid-2017.

"We are pleased to work with Statoil in laying yet another one of the key building blocks for the major Johan Sverdrup development," said Knut Sandvik, Head of Aker Solutions' Maintenance, Modifications and Operations business.
