Aker Solutions moves north

As the chase for oil and gas moves further north, the oil services industry follows. Aker Solutions has announced plans to establish a large engineering office in Tromsø as part of the company's Northern Norway strategy.

The new office will gather knowledge and expertise related to the northern region. It will become involved in engineering and maintenance and modification projects on the entire Norwegian continental shelf and abroad, and be an integral part of Aker Solutions' international competence network.

"We believe in the reserves potential on the Norwegian continental shelf and in the Arctic. If the marked continues to develop positively and we are successful in our efforts to win work with customers in the region, we believe that we will have a substantial engineering hub in the North with 2-300 employees in three to five years," says executive chairman of Aker Solutions, Øyvind Eriksen.

The establishment of the Tromsø office is part of Aker Solutions' overall strategy to increase the company's footprint in the northern regions of Norway, driven by an increasing number of interesting field development opportunities offshore northern Norway and in the Barents Sea.

Elsewhere in northern Norway, Aker Solutions is in the process of building up a subsea service base - housing engineers, technical staff and field operators - in Hammerfest to support the Goliat subsea field development. Aker Solutions has also recently acquired the Narvik-based well technology business X3M Invent. Aker Solutions is also considering establishing an engineering office in Sandnessjøen to support the company's modifications and operations services business.

Aker Solutions today has offices and operations in the following Norwegian locations: Arendal, Asker, Bergen, Egersund, Fornebu, Hammerfest, Horten, Kristiansand, Kristiansund, Lier, Midsund, Moss, Narvik, Oslo, Porsgrunn, Stavanger, Trondheim and Ågotnes.
