Aker Solutions has won a contract from Det norske oljeselskap, as operator, to conduct a front-end, engineering and design (FEED) study for the Draupne field on the Norwegian continental shelf. The study will be carried out by Aker Solutions' newly established engineering office in London, and delivered to the license partners in Q4 2012. The contract value is undisclosed.
"I am very pleased that Det norske has decided to follow on the pre-FEED contract with the award of the topsides FEED contract for the Draupne development. The Draupne pre-FEED was the first contract awarded to the re-established Aker Solutions engineering entity in London. The new award confirms the successful build-up of our London office," says Valborg Lundegaard, executive vice president and head of engineering in Aker Solutions.
