Co. to deliver as many as 24 sets of splitter wellhead systems.
Aker Solutions wins contract in MalaysiaThe contract, which includes
deliveries of ancillary equipment and services, is worth USD 15 million over
three years and may be extended by a year.
Surface wellheads are used on land-based and shallow-water platforms for
drilling and production equipment.
Murphy will use the equipment in Block SK 309/311, off the coast of Sarawak in
"This is the first major surface wellhead contract for Aker Solutions in
Malaysia," says Dave Hutchinson, head of Aker Solutions' subsea operations in
Asia."We look forward to developing our relationship with Murphy in South East
Asia, where we have worked together for several years."
Aker Solutions' splitter wellhead system enables drilling of two or more wells
from a single well slot on a platform. This reduces the number of well slots
needed by at least 50 percent and consequently requires less deck space.
Most of the equipment will be produced at Aker Solutions' dedicated surface
wellhead manufacturing facility in Batam in Indonesia while Aker Solutions'
Port Klang facility in Malaysia will produce the Shear-Safe surface gate valve
actuators. The latter are used in the splitter wellhead system to improve the
management of oil and gas flow under pressure.
Engineering and project management will take place at Aker Solutions' offices
in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.
