HOUSTON, Mar. 18
-- ConocoPhillips let a 5.5 billion kroner engineering, procurement, and construction contract to Aker Solutions for delivery of the topsides and bridges for the Eldfisk 2/7S integrated production platform in the North Sea.

The contract calls for a topsides consisting of one combined living quarter and utility module, and a combined process and wellhead module, with a total 15,500-ton weight. In addition under the contract, Aker Solutions will fabricate two bridges, one bridge support module, and a flare. Aker expects fabrication to commence in 2012, with delivery of the topsides in early 2014.

The contract is subject to Norway's approval of ConocoPhillips's plan for development and operation.

ConocoPhillips in its March 2010 proposed environmental impact assessment notes that the platform with a planned 40 wells is part of its proposed 35-40 billion kroner redevelopment plan for the Eldfisk oil field that will ensure continued production from the field to 2028.

Eldfisk lies in 70-75 m of water on Block 2/7, production license 018, about 300 km off Norway.

The field, discovered in 1970, started production in 1979.

Operator ConocoPhillips holds a 35.112% interest in the production license. Partners are Eni Norge AS 12.388%, Petoro AS 5%, Statoil 7.604%, and Total E&P Norge AS 39.896%.
