Aker Solutions has won a bid to deliver more than NOK 350 million to China’s largest oil company, CNOOC.


The work includes more than 35 kilometres of removable and permanent power lines to the Liuhua oil field in the South China Sea beyond Hong Kong. The cables will link subsea infrastructure to a new floating production, storage and reloading unit Liuhua. So wrote Aker Solutions in a press release.

“We are honoured to work with CNOOC again, to show what we are good at in China,” said CEO, Luis Araujo.

“Liuhua is an important project and we look forward to offering the cables that meet the requirements for long-range power transmission,” he said.

The special systems are so-called umbilicals – umbilical cord systems – composite cable and fibre optic systems that deploy power, while allowing control and communication between subsea equipment on the seabed and platforms or floating production facilities.

The global project will involve Aker Solutions plants worldwide. Engineering will be led from Malaysia, while production and design will take place in Alabama, USA.

Product delivery is set for 2019 for parts of the project and 2020 for the rest.

The order will be booked in the third quarter of this year.
