Aker Solutions received a notification of award for orders valued at more than NOK 1.7bn from the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to provide the subsea production system and umbilicals for the Lingshui 17-2 gas field.
Lingshui 17-2 is CNOOC’s first subsea deep-water project developed by the company with water depths of up to about 1,500 meters. The field is located in the South China Sea, off the Hainan Province.
The subsea production system for the Lingshui 17-2 field consists of 11 horizontal subsea trees, four manifolds, topside and subsea control system and a vertical tie-in connection system. The work scope also includes more than 70kms of static and dynamic umbilicals, linking the subsea development to a new, semisubmersible platform.
The project will further strengthen the supplier base in China. Aker Solutions is committed to developing the supplier industry in China and assist them in unlocking new opportunities in the industry through this project.
The subsea manifold will be manufactured and tested locally by China Offshore Oil Engineering Company. The services for installation and commissioning will also be executed in China.
The global project will involve Aker Solutions’ facilities in Malaysia, Norway and the United Kingdom. The delivery for the subsea production system and umbilicals will be from the second half of 2019 to 2020. The order will be booked in the fourth quarter of 2018.
