The Norwegian outfit will supply two production control umbilicals and three umbilical termination assemblies for the field, which is jointly owned by Murphy with Ecopetrol.

One control and injection umbilical will tie Dalamatian back to Murphy’s De Soto Canyon Block 4 well 34 kilometres away, while the other infield umbilical will connect two blocks 8 kilometres apart.

The umbilicals, to be used in water depths of around 1800 metres, will be installed in the final quarter of 2013.

Aker Solutions’ umbilical operations facility in Mobile, Alabama will provide engineering, project management and manufacturing of the umbilicals, while engineering for the subsea umbilical termination assemblies will be completed in Houston.

The value of the works was not disclosed.

The two companies have also tied up in Malaysia, where Aker Solutions is providing subsea equipment for the US independent’s Siakap North-Petai subsea development off Sabah under a multi-million dollar deal.
