 Aker Solutions ASA : Aker Solutions receives second call-off from Petrobras

27thMarch 2013 - Aker Solutions has received a second call-off order from
Petrobras for the delivery of subsea equipment for the Sapinhoá and Lula
Nordeste pre-salt field developments in Brazil. The contract is a call-off
from a frame agreement signed in April 2010. The contract value is
undisclosed.

Scope of work includes 20 well-sets with vertical subsea trees, subsea control
systems, tools and spares within the 2013-2015 period.

The contract is a call-off from a frame agreement signed in April 2010, when
Petrobras ordered subsea production equipment for the Sapinhoá and Lula
Nordeste fields, located 300 kilometres off the São Paulo coast in the Santos
Basin offshore Brazil.

Aker Solutions has delivered the first well-sets for the frame agreement
signed in 2010. Technology that was developed for this contract will be
utilised in the new order.

"Aker Solutions has market leading deepwater technology and extensive
experience from pre-salt field developments in Brazil. This contract reflects
our long term commitment to support Petrobras in the development of the
Brazilian deepwater fields," says Alan Brunnen, head of Aker Solutions' subsea
business area.

Aker Solutions has provided subsea production equipment for all the three
initial field developments of the Brazilian pre-salt area.

Currently, the company employs 1400 people in Brazil within several business
areas. In addition to being a market leader in the pre-salt area for subsea
equipment and services, Aker Solutions delivers downstream and topsides
process technology, offshore mooring and loading systems, deepwater drilling
systems, and subsea intervention services. 

The subsea equipment for the Sapinhoá and Lula Nordeste fields will be
engineered and manufactured at Aker Solutions' subsea technology centre in
Curitiba, the capital and largest city of the Brazilian state of Paraná in the
southern part of Brazil.
