Aker Solutions' contract involves engineering, procurement and construction of a complete subsea production system, including eight overtrawlable four-slot subsea templates with manifolds, 24 subsea trees, subsea control systems, 20 kilometres of steel tube umbilicals, work-over equipment and a tie-in and connection system.
Executice vice president of Aker Solutions subsea business area, Mads Anderson said: “Although Goliat in many ways will be a reference project for field developments in the Barents Sea, it is important to stress that the technologies we will be using have already been field proven elsewhere and are specifically selected for this environmentally sensitive area. We will execute this project fully in line with demanding environmental standards.”
Aker Solutions will utilise a large part of its Norwegian manufacturing network to deliver the subsea equipment to Goliat, approximately 85 kilometres north-west of Hammerfest. Deliveries to the Goliat oil and gas field development in the Barents Sea will begin in 2011 and will continue until 2013.
