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.
