Aker Solutions to supply three subsea production control umbilicals for Chevron


Aker Solutions has been selected to supply three subsea production control umbilicals for the Chevron operated Jack & St. Malo field developments in the Gulf of Mexico. Contract value is undisclosed.

The production control umbilicals will provide hydraulic, electrical and fiber optic service to the Jack and St. Malo subsea fields. Scope of work includes three electro-hydraulic steel tube production umbilicals totalling 40 miles (65 kilometres). Engineering, project management, and manufacturing will take place at Aker Solutions’ state-of-the-art umbilical facility in Mobile, Alabama. The three umbilicals will be used at Chevron’s Jack & St. Malo field, located in the Walker Ridge Area of the Gulf of Mexico in water depths of approximately 7,000 feet (2,100 metres).

“Aker Solutions is excited to see Chevron come back to us with a repeat order and is proud to contribute to this very important project for Chevron and for the Gulf of Mexico region,” said Erik Wiik, President - Subsea North America, Aker Solutions.

Opened in 2003, Aker Solutions’ umbilical manufacturing facility in Mobile is strategically located to serve the Gulf of Mexico and global markets. The facility, with its high capacity horizontal cabler, is specially designed to meet the challenges of demanding deepwater applications.

Aker Solutions is the market leader within steel tube umbilicals. This position has been backed by a strong focus on health, safety and the environment (HSE) which has been exemplified through reaching an important milestone of five years without a lost time injury (LTI) at both production sites in Moss, Norway, and in Mobile, Alabama.

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