Petrobel, a joint venture between The Egyptian General Petroleum Corp. (EGPC) and Eni, has awarded Aker Solutions a contract to deliver its longest-ever umbilicals system at the Zohr offshore gas field in the Egyptian part of the Mediterranean Sea.
The work will be led by Aker Solutions' subsea division in Oslo, Norway, and manufacturing will start immediately at the umbilicals plant in Moss, Norway. The umbilicals system will be delivered by mid-April 2017.
Luis Araujo, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Aker Solutions, said: "Aker Solutions is building on its previous experience offshore Egypt to now deliver its largest-ever umbilicals project […] We are very pleased to support Petrobel and Egypt on this important development."
