Aker Solutions expands LNG team

Written by  OE Staff Tuesday, 31 October 2017 05:40

Aker Solutions has boosted its expertise in LNG by hiring four specialists who have worked on more than 30 LNG projects globally.

Aker Solutions has been working in LNG and gas processing, technology and projects, since the 1970s, starting with the development of the first spherical tanks to ship the fuel.

It says demand or gas is expected to outpace oil and coal over the next 20 years, with LNG consumption more than doubling, as the world increasingly moves to low-carbon energy.

The additions to Aker Solutions’ LNG and gas processing team strengthen the company’s ability to integrate the various phases of an offshore gas development from early feasibility studies to delivery, unlocking value and bringing efficiencies across an entire project, says Aker.

“Strengthening our gas team with this top industry talent extends our reach in a sector where we see great potential,” said Executive Vice President Knut Nyborg, who heads Aker Solutions’ front end delivery center.

“We’re now in a strong position to develop cost-effective integrated gas solutions from reservoir to market, providing our customers the solutions they need to develop these new and often complex gas projects,” said Nyborg.

Today, Aker Solutions is involved in a number of LNG projects around the world, including a liquefaction facility in the US and a floating LNG facility in West Africa. The company is also a leader in subsea production, processing and transportation of gas.

In 2015, Aker Solutions delivered the world’s first subsea gas compression system for the Åsgard field offshore Norway.

The new London-based team is part of the company’s front end group, which provides early-phase engineering and consultancy services for energy projects.
