BP Norway renewing contract with Bilfinger
BP Norway has exercised a renewal option under a master contract signed in 2011 with Bilfinger Industrier Norge for maintenance services for BP’s North Sea oil and gas operations.
Valued at €50 million ($68.6 million) and running from May 1, 2014, to April 30, 2016, the renewal covers painting, scaffolding, insulation, and access technology services at the Valhall, Ula, and Skarv fields.
This latest contract follows on from contracts awarded at the end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014. At the end of 2013, Statoil awarded Bilfinger Industrier Norge a contract covering services at its North Sea production facilities and onshore plants on the Norwegian coast for a period from August 2014 to July 2016, valued at €250 million ($343 million). This was followed at the beginning of 2014 by a further contract extension signed with Statoil providing for services at the offshore platforms in the Sleipner gas field, worth €40 million ($55 million).
