Aker Solutions wins basic engineering contract for Hild field

Aker Solutions has won a contract to conduct the basic engineering for the development of Total's Hild field in the Norwegian North Sea. The contract value is about NOK 215 million.

Aker Solutions' scope of work includes engineering for several building blocks, including topside, jacket, an FSO (floating storage and offloading), turret and mooring, SURF (subsea umbilicals, risers, pipelines and flowlines) and transportation and installation. The work will be completed in the summer of 2012. Basic engineering work covers a greater level of detail than a normal FEED (Front-end, engineering and design) study for field developments.


The topside engineering will be done from Aker Solutions' head offices in Oslo, Norway, while the turret and mooring work will be conducted in Kristiansand, Norway. Aker Solutions has previously completed a pre-project/pre-basic engineering study for the field. The contract party for Aker Solutions is Aker Engineering & Technology AS.
