Aker Solutions has secured a contract valued at more than NOK1 billion (US$123.4 million) from Equinor to deliver a module for the Troll A platform that will increase output at one of Norway’s largest natural gas fields.

The engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) contract is the company’s latest award for work at phase 3 of the Troll development, which is about 65 kilometres west of Kollsnes.

Chief Executive Officer Luis Araujo said the EPCI work is an option on the front-end engineering and design work Aker Solutions won in September.

The module will receive and process gas from the Troll West field, before it is piped to the onshore Kollsnes gas processing facility near Bergen, Norway.

The Troll field contains about 40 per cent of Norway’s offshore gas reserves.

Production is expected to continue beyond 2050.
