NORWAY – AKER BP AWARDS CONTRACTS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF NOA FULLA
Aker BP has awarded FEED contracts worth nearly NOK 700 million to its alliance partners. The contracts relate to the field development of NOA Fulla in the southern part of the NOAKA area. The NOAKA area is located between Oseberg and Alvheim in the Norwegian North Sea.
The NOAKA area includes NOA, Fulla and Krafla. Aker BP is the operator for NOA Fulla in the south. Equinor is the operator for Krafla to the north.
“We’ve passed an important milestone in the development of NOA Fulla. These are the first major contracts to be awarded in the field development. Now we are getting started on further developing the concept of platforms, production systems and flowlines on the seabed. We are also developing a solution for power from shore that will pave the way for minimal greenhouse gas emissions from operations of the field. This is just the beginning of a field development that will have great significance for activity in the Norwegian supplier industry,” says SVP NOAKA Lars Høier in Aker BP.
The development concept for NOA Fulla consists of a process, drilling and living quarters platform (PdQ) on NOA, a normally unmanned wellhead platform (NUI) on Frøy and three subsea templates for development of Fulla, Langfjellet and Rind. The entire area will receive power from shore, which will minimise greenhouse gas emissions.
