Aker Solutions awarded $850M Moho contract

Aker Solutions

Total has awarded International oil services provider Aker Solutions a contract for the delivery of a subsea production system for the Moho Nord project in the Republic of the Congo. The contract value is approximately US$850 million.

The Moho Nord project, located approximately 75 km off the coast of the Republic of the Congo, consists of the two developments Moho Nord and Moho Bilondo 1bis. Aker Solutions and Total will run both developments as one integrated project. 

Scope of work within the contract includes the delivery of 28 vertical subsea trees including wellhead systems, 2 installation and workover control systems, 7 manifold structures, subsea control and tie-in systems. The contract also contains options related to Moho Nord which Total may exercise.

The project will utilize Aker Solutions' new vertical tree technology. The workover technology has been developed as part of the Skandi Aker/Tulip project for Total.

Management, engineering and procurement will primarily be performed at Aker Solutions' headquarters in Fornebu, Norway. The subsea trees and the workover systems will be manufactured at the Tranby manufacturing centre, outside Oslo. The production of the manifolds will be carried out at Aker Solutions' facility in Egersund on the west coast of Norway, while the facility in Aberdeen in the UK will deliver the control systems and the wellheads.

Moho Nord and Moho Bilondo 1bis are part of the Moho-Bilondo oil field which was commissioned in April 2008 for commercial production. It is the first deepwater offshore field of the Republic of the Congo at water depths ranging between 600 to 1050 metres.

Aker will establish a service base together with Total in Pointe Noire where it is expected roughly 40 people will be employed. 

The first deliveries of the Moho subsea production system will be made in the second quarter of 2014.
