AKER SOLUTIONS SECURES SERVICES CONTRACT FOR HEBRON PLATFORM OFFSHORE NEWFOUNDLAND
Aker Solutions has secured a five-year contract extension from ExxonMobil for the provision of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for the Hebron platform, offshore Newfoundland.
The contract is an extension for a 5-year period, starting in the summer of 2020. Aker Solutions has provided EPC services to Hebron since 2015. The work will be led from Aker Solutions’ premises in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Aker Solutions estimates the contract value to be NOK 1.4 billion, which will be booked as order intake in the third quarter of 2020.
“We are delighted to be extending our strong relationship with ExxonMobil in Canada, and to further strengthen the international footprint of our brownfield services business,” says Linda Aase, executive vice president, brownfield projects, at Aker Solutions.
The Hebron oil field is located offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin 350 kilometres southeast of St. John’s. The field lays in 93 meters of water and was first discovered in 1980. It is estimated to produce more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources.
The field is being developed using a stand-alone concrete gravity based structure (GBS). The GBS consists of a reinforced concrete structure designed to withstand sea ice, icebergs and meteorological and oceanographic conditions.
