Scope of work within the contract includes the delivery of 28 vertical subsea trees including wellhead systems, two installation and workover control systems, seven manifold structures, subsea control and tie-in systems. The contract also contains options related to Moho Nord which Total may exercise.

The Moho Nord project, located approximately 75 km off the coast of the Republic of the Congo, consists of Moho Nord and Moho Bilondo 1bis. Aker Solutions and Total will run both developments as one integrated project. It is the first deepwater offshore field of the Republic of the Congo at water depths ranging between 600 to 1050 metres.

"This is a major contract award for Aker Solutions. We are investing and growing internationally and Aker Solutions is committed to developing the oil and gas industry in the Republic of the Congo through knowledge sharing and local content," says Alan Brunnen, head of Aker Solutions' subsea business area.

Management, engineering and procurement will primarily be performed at Aker Solutions' headquarters in Fornebu, Norway. The subsea trees and the workover systems will be manufactured at the Tranby manufacturing centre, outside Oslo. The production of the manifolds will be carried out at Aker Solutions' facility in Egersund on the west coast of Norway, while the facility in Aberdeen in the UK will deliver the control systems and the wellheads.

Aker Solutions will also establish a service base together with Total in Pointe Noire which is the second largest city in the Republic of the Congo. Aker Solutions and Total expect that 40 people will be employed at the base. The first deliveries of the Moho subsea production system will be made in the second quarter of 2014.
