Norwegian well intervention company DeepWell has secured a long-term contract for the provision of mechanical wireline services to Statoil.
The contract value for the firm period, including options for add-on services, is estimated to exceed NOK 1 billion ($118 million) over a four-year period. If the option periods are included the value of the deal climbs to more than NOK 2 billion.
