Norwegian engineering firm Aker Solutions said on Aug. 2 it has won a contract from Shell Plc to build an offshore platform for Britain’s Jackdaw gas field.

The offshore field about 250 km east of Aberdeen is expected to account for over 6% of British North Sea gas output at its peak production in by the middle of this decade, Shell has said.

To lower the costs, the field will be produced by using a wellhead platform that is not permanently manned, tied back to the nearby Shearwater platform.
