OSLO, Norway --Norsk Hydro Produksjon has contracted Plexus Holdings to supply its POS-Grip wellhead system for use in the Norwegian North Sea.

Under the £0.7 million ($1.4 million) contract, Plexus will provide high pressure, high temperature exploration rental wellhead equipment, mudline suspension equipment, and service support.

Plexus' proprietary systems are designed to allow the latest generation of jackups to keep the BOP in place for the well during exploration drilling. It claims that the POS-Grip method of engineering for wellheads and connectors offers benefits in dealing with the high forces generated by HP/HT environments, including cost and time savings, and improved safety.
