Statoil to exercise the option for Troll B contract to Aker Solutions
Statoil has, on behalf of the license partners, decided to exercise the option for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of a gas module that will increase gas processing capacity on the Troll B platform, the company said in its press release.
The contract has a value of approximately NOK 370 million, and is an option in a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract awarded to Aker Solutions in January 2016.
The engineering work will be carried out by Aker Solutions in Bergen and module construction will start at Aker’s yard in Egersund in 2017.
Weighing just above 500 tonnes, the module is scheduled to be lifted onto Troll B in the spring of 2018 and become operational in the third quarter of 2018.
