Aker Solutions has been awarded a contract for offshore engineering services to support Husky Energy's activities at the offshore White Rose field in Canada.
The estimated contract value is NOK 900 million (US$155 million) for the five-year period. The scope of work includes studies, modifications (EPCI) and campaign maintenance services. The duration is five years with an option to extend the contract for as many as 10 one-year periods.
"We are delighted that Husky has chosen us as their preferred partner for offshore engineering services at the White Rose field," said Tore Sjursen, head of maintenance, modifications and operations at Aker Solutions. "Our presence in North America is increasing and the award will be a good foundation for further growth in Canada."
The project will employ about 70 management and engineering employees onshore, as well as 20 people on rotation offshore.
The White Rose field is located 350 kmsoutheast of St. John's, Canada, and consists of a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
