The intended FEED contract includes an option for engineering, procurement, construction and integration (EPCI) of the topside for the FPSO. The scope of the FEED is to provide front-end design- and engineering for a circular FPSO solution, to further progress the project development towards a planned final investment decision. If the field development moves forward to execution phase, Aker Solutions estimates the EPCI option to potentially represent a significant contract, subject to final investment decision and regulatory approvals.
"Wisting is one of the largest upcoming industrial projects in Norway. We are looking forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with Equinor for this significant field development, and to mature the project towards a planned investment decision", said Sturla Magnus, executive vice president and head of Aker Solutions' topside and facilities business.
The FEED award follows the successful completion of the study phase, and the work starts immediately with planned completion in 3Q22. The FEED work will be led by Aker Solutions’ offices in Fornebu, Norway.
The Wisting FPSO is based on a Sevan design. The topside will have a weight of about 20 000 metric t, consisting of a large process module and a large utility module.
"This major project will have significant positive effects on employment for our engineering resources and at our yards in Norway and create substantial ripple effects for the society and local communities near the yards," said Magnus.
