Norwegian Aker Solution has been awarded a contract, charging the industry group to deliver subsea umbilicals for Exxonmobil’s Uaru project in Guyana.

Aker Solutions deems the contract sizeable, worth NOK 0.5-1.5bn in the company’s own calculations, Aker Solutions writes in a press statement.

The contract includes delivery of three dynamic and seven static umbilicals totaling over 52 kilometers in length. Execution, engineering and manufacturing will take place at Aker Solutions’ facility in Mobile, Alabama.

“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,” states Maria Peralta, executive vice president and head of Aker Solutions’ subsea business.

The project is scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2026.
