Aker Solutions ASA: Aker Solutions and Total to Cooperate on Subsea Technology Development

February 16, 2016 - Aker Solutions and Total agreed to collaborate on research
and innovation to develop new cost-effective subsea field technology.

The initial four-year technical collaboration agreement will build on earlier
cooperation and bring both companies closer in developing technologies that
will reduce costs and increase value at subsea oil and gas fields. The
partnership will this year explore a wide range of issues, including further
evolution of subsea processing and compression systems to boost
cost-efficiency of deepwater gas production, development of electric subsea
controls and optimization of flow-measurement technologies. Further scope of
the collaboration will be defined over the next months.

"This joint effort reinforces our common interest in finding more effective
solutions to maximize value from subsea field developments," said Hervé
Valla, chief technology officer at Aker Solutions. "It allows us to work more
closely with Total to solve technical challenges faced by the industry today
and to reduce the time needed to bring subsea technology to the market."

Total has been a strategic customer of Aker Solutions for many years including
on subsea projects such as the Kaombo and Dalia developments in Angola and
Moho Nord in Congo-Brazzaville. The companies have worked closely on solving
specific project challenges and designing solutions to enable future
developments. This includes collaborating on subsea boosting solutions and
subsea plant for deepwater application as part of Total's deep offshore
research and development program.
