Aker Kvaerner Won Sonatrach $23m Contract

Aker Kvaerner said the process equipment will provide electrostatic desalination and degassing of crude oil

Aker Kvaerner ASA, a multinational provider of services related to design, construction, maintenance and operation of industrial facilities, said it has been awarded a $23 mln contract by Algeria oil company Sonatrach for the delivery of process equipment to its Hassi Messaoud facility, located 650 km southwest of Algeirs.

Aker Kvaerner said the process equipment will provide electrostatic desalination and degassing of crude oil, while at the same time improving and upgrading Sonatrach's processing capacity and equipment at the facility.

The project will be managed by Aker Kvaerner Process Systems Canada, with scheduled delivery of the equipment in the fourth quarter of 2007 and commissioning in the summer of 2008.
