Statoil awarded the contract to Aker Solutions in December 2010. The system consists of modules for two identical sets of compressors, pumps, scrubbers and coolers fitted together in an 1800-metric ton steel frame. These components were delivered to Statoil ready for installation on the seafloor of the Åsgard field.
“We’re immensely proud to be part of this achievement, which is a major milestone for our industry,” said Aker Solutions’ CEO Luis Araujo. “The close collaboration we’ve had with Statoil and our suppliers has been essential to ensure the successful delivery of this break-through technology.”
