Aker Solutions and Fjords Processing form separation technology alliance

The WellSep alliance will bring together Aker Solutions’ subsea processing experience and testing facilities and Fjords Processing’s topside and onshore separation technologies.

“This is a great opportunity to further develop our key technologies with one of our most important partners, Aker Solutions,” said Rune Fantoft, CEO of Fjords Processing. “Developing our competence in a joint initiative will enable us to increase our focus on produced water and separation technology.”

“The alliance will further strengthen our wellstream separation technology portfolio, testing and in-house capabilities,” said Alan Brunnen, head of subsea at Aker Solutions. “This brings us one step further in developing fully-fledged subsea production and processing systems that increase oil and gas recovery and lower costs for our customers.”

The alliance will have a dedicated team from both companies. Aker Solutions will serve the subsea market while Fjords Processing will focus on the topside segment.

Fjords Processing was previously known as Aker Process Systems.
