Statoil ties up drilling needs on 10 Norwegian field complexes
Statoil has awarded drilling contracts with a total value of more than NOK12 billion ($1.53 billion) to Archer, KCA Deutag, and Odfjell Drilling.
These cover provision of completion, intervention services, plugging, maintenance and modifications on 18 of Statoil’s fixed platforms offshore Norway, and take effect from Oct. 1, initially for a period of four years.
The deals, which include three two-year extension options, will provide employment for roughly 2,000 personnel per year.
Statoil says one of its aims is to improve its collaboration with drilling and service contractors. It has devised a common incentive program to achieve safe and efficient operations through close cooperation and integration of work.
The drilling contracts apply to the following installations:
Gullfaks A, B, and C
Oseberg B, C, South and East
Snorre A and B
Statfjord A, B and C
