STAVANGER, Norway -- Statoil has contracted Aker Offshore Partner for inspection services on 11 platforms on the Norwegian shelf.

The frame agreement lasts for four years, with optional extensions of up to four more. The likely value is around $28.4 million.

Aker will provide services at Statfjord A, B and C; and Gullfaks A, B, and C in the North Sea; and at Kristin, Åsgard A and B; Heidrun, and Njord in the Norwegian Sea. Its remit extends to three onshore plants at Mongstad, Kollsnes, and Sture.

Aker will manage the program from Bergen, Norway, with inspection engineering handled at Aker Solutions divisions in Stavanger, Bergen, Mongstad, and Trondheim.
