11 January 2013 - Aker Solutions subsidiary Aker Oilfield Services has signed a contract to
provide subsea construction services offshore Brazil. Contract value is undisclosed.

An undisclosed customer will utilise Aker Oilfield Services' subsea construction vessel Aker
Wayfarer for a period of 230 days. Start-up of operations is likely to be in May/June 2013, with
mobilisation and de-mobilisation taking place in north-east UK. 

Aker Wayfarer has previously been on a year-long campaign offshore Brazil during 2011 and 2012.

"To secure another long-term campaign offshore Brazil is a compliment to the capabilities of Aker
Wayfarer and her crew. This is an important contract for us in a rapidly growing oil and gas
region," says Karl Erik Kjelstad, president of Aker Oilfield Services and head of the Oilfield
Services and Marine Assets (OMA) business area in Aker Solutions. 

Aker Wayfarer is an ultramodern 157 metres long offshore construction vessel capable of operating
in water depths up to 3 000 metres. She comes with two heave compensated cranes of 400 t and 100 t
(dual fall) capacity and two integrated heavy duty Work ROV's and survey spread.

"We are delighted to have this exceptional vessel back in operations in Brazilian waters. This
order reflects our commitment to this market," says Luis Antonio Araujo, regional president of
Aker Solutions in Brazil.

The contract has been signed and booked as order intake in Q4 2012.
