Aker Solutions awarded Russian contract
Aker Solutions has been awarded contracts from Exxon Neftegas Limited, as operator on behalf of the Sakhalin-1 Consortium, for designing, constructing and delivering the Arkutun-Dagi gravity base structure (GBS) for the Sakhalin-1 project.
The GBS construction will primarily utilise Russian workers, subcontractors, and materials.
Once completed, the GBS will be located offshore Sakhalin Island on the east coast of Russia and will be a part of the drilling and production facilities for the Arkutun-Dagi development, a future phase of Sakhalin-1.
The other participants in the Sakhalin-1 Consortium are SODECO, ONGC Videsh Ltd, and affiliates of Rosneft, Sakhalinmorneftegas-Shelf and RN-Astra. For the Sakhalin 1 Arkutun-Dagi GBS, Aker Solutions estimates the total value for services could total USD 600 million over the next three years.
