The work awarded to the two companies is required to finalise the technical definition of the proposed development prior to Aker BP and its partners making the final investment decision (FID) in late 2022. The FEED study will begin immediately.
Subsea 7 has said that offshore installation activities would be scheduled for 2025, 2026 and 2027.
Aker Solutions has said that the scope of the subsea production systems (SPS) FEED is planned to include 14 standardised vertical subsea trees, Vectus™ 6.0 based Control system modules, four six-slot manifolds, wellheads and a large number of tie-in and connection systems. It will also include close to 60 km of umbilicals. The SPS project will be executed through the Subsea Alliance between Aker BP, Aker Solutions and Subsea 7, building on shared goals and incentives as well as a strategy to leverage technology and digital solutions in new ways to reduce carbon footprint.
Monica Bjørkmann, Vice President for Subsea 7 Norway said: “This award continues our long-standing collaboration with Aker BP, through the Aker BP Subsea Alliance. The partnership enables Subsea 7 to engage early in the field development process, optimising design solutions and contributing to the final investment decision. We are delighted to continue our alliance with Aker BP for the NOA Fulla development, which is of significant importance for all partners in the Subsea Alliance. Subsea 7 looks forward to working closely with Aker BP to successfully deliver our scope with safety and quality at the forefront throughout.”
