Dutch provider of recruitment and HR services Atlas Professionals has signed a framework agreement with the Norwegian oil operator Det norske oljeselskap.
According to a statement by Atlas Professionals, the four-year deal becomes effective on June 1, with an option for Det norske to extend for another two years.
Under the new agreement, Atlas Professionals will provide Subsurface Specialists, Wellsite and Operations Geologists to Det norske.
This is not the first time the two companies are doing business together, as their working relationship began in 2013.
Atlas’ Discipline Engineering & Project Controls and Drilling & Well Services teams in Stavanger (Norway) and Hoofddorp (Netherlands) will be collaborating on this frame agreement.
Renske Barentsz, Atlas Professionals’ business Manager in Norway said:“Atlas is excited that we have been given the opportunity to further extend our relationship with Det norske oljeselskap ASA, especially in these challenging times. We have had the pleasure of working with Det norske for a number of years by supplying Engineers and Supervisors to their Drilling department.
We look forward to reinforcing our partnership with Det norske in supplying experienced and qualified onshore and offshore personnel for their exploration, development and production activities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.”
Earlier this week, Det norske was awarded one operatorship and two partnerships in Norway’s 23rd licensing round, covering new acreage in the Barents Sea, an area the company says it wants to invest heavily in.
