Aker Solutions ASA: Aker Solutions to Supply Subsea Manifolds for Petrobras Pre-Salt Fields

April 9, 2014 - Aker Solutions won a contract worth more than USD 300 million
from Petrobras to supply eight manifolds that alternately inject water and
gas to increase oil recovery from Brazil's deepwater offshore fields.

The subsea manifolds, designed for water depths of 2,500 meters, will be
installed by Petrobras and its partners in deepwater pre-salt field
developments. The units have a design life of 30 years and the first is
scheduled to be delivered in 2016.
"We are pleased to work with Petrobras on its important and technically
challenging pre-salt developments," said Øyvind Eriksen, executive chairman
of Aker Solutions. "Brazil is a key market for our subsea technology and one
of the fastest-growing areas in the oil and gas industry."

The order will be executed by Aker Solutions' Brazilian subsea division. The
unit last year began work to double its subsea equipment manufacturing
capacity at a plant in Curitiba by 2015. About 70 percent of the contract
with Petrobras will be procured and manufactured in Brazil.
"Aker Solutions is committed to delivering high local content in Brazil, where
demand for complex subsea production equipment is growing," said Luis Araujo,
president for Aker Solutions in Brazil.
The manifolds will play a key part in the crucial injection process that helps
improve recovery from the fields.
