Aker Solutions will provide subsea umbilicals for the ExxonMobil-operated Uaru project in the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana.

The Norwegian engineering company will deliver three dynamic and seven static umbilicals totaling more than 52 km in length. Project execution, engineering, and manufacturing will begin immediately at its facility in Mobile, Alabama, with delivery planned for the first quarter of 2026.

“We are excited by the award of the Uaru umbilical system, and to continue our relationship with ExxonMobil in Guyana, following the previous awards of the Payara and Yellowtail umbilical," said Maria Peralta, executive vice president and head of Aker Solutions' subsea business.

The company described the contract as sizeable, with a value ranging between NOK 0.5 billion and 1.5 billion.

The ExxonMobil-led consortium that includes Hess and CNOOC International sanctioned the $12.7 billion Uaru development in April. The project will have a production capacity of 250,000 BOPD at its peak and is the consortium’s largest and most expensive project in the region.

TechnipFMC recently landed the contract to supply the project’s subsea production systems. MODEC and Saipem also landed contracts for the Uaru project’s floating production, storage, and offloading vessel and subsea installation, respectively.

Aker Solutions also was recently awarded a sizeable contract by TotalEnergies to provide its deepwater standard subsea production systems for three additional infill wells tied back to the Moho Nord field offshore the Republic of Congo. Final deliveries of the systems are scheduled for the first quarter of 2025.
