Aker Solutions has previously delivered drilling equipment to eight drilling
rigs operating in the Caspian Sea. Two of the rigs are semi submersible and
operated by CDC.

long-lasting relationship with CDC," said Roy Dyrseth, head of Aker Solutions'
drilling technologies business. "We are pleased to secure more work in
Azerbaijan after making significant investments in our infrastructure in the
region."

The equipment will mainly be constructed and assembled at Aker Solutions'
facilities in Kristiansand and Asker in Norway as well as in Erkelenz in
Germany.

Installation and commissioning services will be performed by the Caspian
Shipyard Company Ltd., where Keppel Fels is the major shareholder. Delivery is
scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2016.
