Aker Solutions has signed a $206.31m contract with China National Offshore Oil’s (CNOOC) Lingshui 17-2 gas field to supply subsea production system and umbilicals. Lingshui 17-2 is an up to the 1,500m subsea deepwater project.

The field’s subsea production system includes 11 horizontal subsea trees, four manifolds, a top side, and a subsea control system, and a vertical tie-in connection system.

70 km of static and dynamic umbilicals will also be provided by Aker Solutions. They link the subsea development to a new semi-submersible platform.

Luis Araujo, Aker Solutions CEO, says: “We are pleased to extend our partnership with CNOOC in China to the Lingshui gas field and leverage our global deepwater capabilities. Our complete offering will enable CNOOC to reduce costs and maximize the production of the field.”

Company’s’ facilities in Malaysia, the UK, and Norway will be in charge of delivering contract services.  The company expects to deliver the subsea production system and umbilicals from midyear of 2019 up to 2020.

Earlier this year Aker received a contract from Petrobras to provide a subsea production system and related services for the Mero-1 project which belongs to Mero field development in offshore Brazil. The latest deal went in a path with it.

Aker secured an order to supply umbilical power system for the Liuhua oilfields in China this year in August.
