Bureau Veritas wins contract to support North Sea drilling operations

Bureau Veritas, a provider of testing, inspection, and certification services, has been awarded a six-figure contract to support drilling operations in the North Sea.

BV said on Monday that the long-term frame agreement would see it provide inspection and verification services for nine rigs.

The project will be coordinated out of Bureau Veritas’ Aberdeen base.

Paul Shrieve, the regional CEO of North Sea Offshore Operations, said: “Bureau Veritas has always been committed to the North Sea region, viewing it as a viable business area where we intend to continue to grow, expand and support our clients.

“Our faith is echoed in Oil & Gas UK’s recently published 2018 Business Outlook, which suggests at least 12 new developments worth around £5 billion are expected to be sanctioned this year – the healthiest forecast for new projects for three years.”

The company added that the client, an undisclosed “global drilling contractor”, would receive the streamlined data tracking and reporting from its projects through Bureau Veritas’ Compliance System.

The cloud-based system has been developed by Bureau Veritas to gather clients’ disparate maintenance, inspection, and verification data into one centralized hub, giving the client full detailed visibility at any time, in one view.

“It is important that technology is used to bring practical solutions to challenges faced by the modern energy industry, not just for the sake of technology, and that is core to the development of this system.

“Simplification, real-time answers to questions and risk reduction are all delivered through this, and we look forward to supporting more clients with it,” added Shrieve.
