HOUSTON -- Baker Hughes has been awarded a multi-million dollar integrated services contract project by the Borgland Dolphin Consortium (BDC) in Norway.
The BDC includes seven operators, Wintershall, OMV, Nexen, E.ON Ruhrgas, Rocksource, Front Exploration and Bridge Energy. The contract, which has an initial three-year period, covers an exploration program on the Norwegian continental shelf encompassing 15 wells.
Baker Hughes will work closely with well management contractor AGR Petroleum Services, providing service integration and planning as well as directional drilling, measurement-while-drilling (MWD), logging-while-drilling (LWD), mud logging, drilling fluids, wireline logging and coring services.
The company will also provide drill cuttings and liquid waste handling. Project planning for the exploration campaign is already under way, with the first well due to spud next June.
