Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil and Lloyd’s Register Energy have signed a Master Service Agreement (MSA) for platform technology services and HSE studies.
The agreement is effective as of November 10, and will cover Statoil’s full project portfolio from new builds to modifications of existing assets.
Lloyd’s Register Energy, an engineering, technical and business services organisation, will provide safety studies, platform technology engineering services, and a full scope of global inspection services such as new build certification, vendor site inspection and vendor assessments.
Inge Alme, Sales Director at Lloyd’s Register Energy, said: “We are delighted to secure this MSA with Statoil; a significant milestone in our long collaboration which will prove highly beneficial for both parties in our shared efforts to enhance safety and efficiency in operations.”
“The agreement covers the full Lloyd’s Register Energy service offering throughout the value chain from safety studies through inspection services to technical services related to verification, validation, class, etc.”
Lloyd’s Register Energy says that the agreement will allow it to competitively bid on global services for Statoil projects, both onshore and offshore. It also provides the framework for country specific call-offs to be entered into by the local entities of both companies.
