Aker Solutions has signed a contract with McDermott, the main EPCI contractor for the Ichthys gas-condensate field development subsea umbilical, riser, flowline (SURF) project, for INPEX in Australia. The contract value is approximately NOK 440 million.

The scope of work includes the engineering, procurement, fabrication and supply of static and dynamic umbilicals, totalling 63 kilometres for the Ichthys LNG project. 
Key equipment within this contract comprise five dynamic umbilicals, seven static umbilicals, 36 steel tube flying leads, and associated equipment and hardware.

"We have a very strong track record with steel tube umbilicals in the Australian market and this contract for the Ichthys LNG project further confirms our commitment to this significant region and our business footprint down under"

says Tove Røskaft, head of Aker Solutions' umbilicals business

The umbilicals and flying leads will be manufactured and delivered by Aker Solutions' facility in Moss, Norway, and supported by the project management, design and engineering teams in Fornebu, Norway. The expected delivery date is Q4 2014.

The Ichthys LNG project is a joint venture between INPEX (operator), TOTAL and other participants. Gas from the Ichthys field, in the Browse Basin approximately 200 kilometres offshore of Western Australia, will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and extract condensate. The gas will then be exported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin via an 889km subsea pipeline. The Ichthys LNG project is expected to produce 8.4 million tonnes of LNG and 1.6 million tonnes of LPG per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak.

Subsea umbilicals are deployed on the seabed to supply necessary controls and chemicals to subsea oil and gas wells, subsea manifolds and any subsea system requiring a remote control.

Over the past 15 years Aker Solutions has delivered more than 400 umbilicals to some of the world's most challenging fields, from harsh environments to ultra-deep, high-pressure water conditions.

The contract has been signed and booked as order intake in Q2 2012.
