Aker Kvaerner secures US$45 million contract from BP for North Sea platform

LONDON, 7 JUNE 2002: Aker Kvaerner, part of the international oil services,
engineering and construction, pulp and paper and shipbuilding Group, Kvaerner,
today announced that it has secured a contract from BP Exploration Operating
Company Limited - worth approximately US$45 million - for the procurement and
construction of a jacket and piles for the Clair Platform.  The platform will
be located on the UK Continental Shelf.

The work will be undertaken by Aker Kvaerner's Verdal yard in Norway.  
Speaking about the award from BP, Sverre Skogen, CEO of Aker Kvaerner said: 
'This award demonstrates that our long  experience and specialisation in
jacket construction has paid off - and suggests that our yards can be
competitive in the international market.'

'We have been working closely with BP Amoco to improve our safety performance
on previous projects, and are very satisfied that we now can continue this
co-operation on the Clair project. We believe that good safety is an integral
part of the competitiveness of our operations,' Sverre Skogen commented.

Aker Verdal will start fabrication at the Verdal yard in November 2002.  At
its base, the jacket measures 45 x 50 metres square; it has a height of 169
metres, and a total weight of 8,800 tons.

At its peak, the contract is expected to engage some 220 people. Once
delivered in April 2004, the Clair Jacket will be the twenty-ninth such
structure that the Verdal yard has undertaken in a row.  Verdal is one of the
few yards in Europe specialising in jacket construction for the upstream oil
and gas industry - with four jackets currently under construction - Kvitebjorn
for Statoil, Valhall for BPAmoco, Grane for Norsk Hydro and Goldeneye for
Shell UK Exploration and Production.
