Aker Solutions Wins Engineering Contract in Vietnam From Idemitsu Oil and Gas

July 12, 2016 - Aker Solutions secured a contract from Idemitsu Oil and Gas Co.,
Ltd. to provide engineering services for the development of oil and gas
resources in the Nam Con Son basin offshore Vietnam.

It is the first time Aker Solutions teams up with Idemitsu on a project in Asia
Pacific and marks an expansion into a key new market, Vietnam. The nine-month
contract is for front end engineering design (FEED) work for the Sao Vang and
Dai Nguyet developments in the Idemitsu-operated blocks 05-1b and 05-1c in the
Nam Con Son basin.

"We are pleased with the opportunity to for the first time work with Idemitsu
Oil and Gas in such an important emerging market as Vietnam," said Luis Araujo,
chief executive officer of Aker Solutions. "This will further strengthen our
reach in Asia after building an important regional base in Malaysia."

The FEED outcome will be used by Idemitsu Oil and Gas to make an investment
decision for the first phase of development at the Vietnamese basin.

For Aker Solutions the project will at its peak involve about 100 engineers,
designers and drafters out of the company's regional hub in Kuala Lumpur.

The contract is part of the company's second-quarter order intake.
