STAVANGER, NORWAY: Statoil and its partners Total and Det norske have awarded Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) a contract to build the topsides for the Dagny platform, with Aker Solutions as a major sub-contractor. The total contract value is estimated to NOK 6.1 billion ($1.2 billion). Aker Solutions in Stavanger and Oslo, Norway and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will be close partners in the detailed engineering services and offshore hook-up and commissioning.

The award has taken place in wide international competition among pre-qualified suppliers. The offshore supplies market has shown a great deal of interest in the Dagny project. Statoil has briefed the industry extensively and held contact meetings with large and smaller suppliers to clarify expectations and ensure that different bidders are familiar with the expertise available in the market.

The contract comprises detailed design, procurement, engineering services, construction, hook-up and commissioning. The assignment will begin immediately and will be completed in the first quarter of 2017. The contract award is subject to approval of the project by the Norwegian authorities, expected in the first half of 2013.

“We feel confident that the supplier we have chosen for the main contract can deliver on time, cost and quality. They will work with a solid engineering team from Aker Solutions. We note that there are several alliances between different international players in the bids we receive now, when both Norwegian and international suppliers are main contractors. We’re putting strong emphasis on avoiding late changes to the design and experienced Statoil personnel will follow-up the deliveries in all phases. We’re also drawing on experience from other projects in Norway and internationally,” said Jon Arnt Jacobsen, Chief Procurement Officer, Statoil.
