Supply base operator to the global oil and gas industry ASCO Norway has been awarded a contract for a total supply base services by Lundin Norway for its activities in the Barents Sea.
ASCO said last Friday that all activities would be handled by the company’s Hammerfest base in Northern Norway, with a contract period of 4 x 2 years.
CEO of ASCO Norway, Runar Hatletvedt, said: “It is of major importance for ASCO Norge AS that Lundin has awarded us this contract for handling all their supply base services for the Barents Sea. This contract will be the basis for our further growth and development in the Northern parts of Norway.”
ASCO Norge started its operation in Hammerfest in 2016 after being awarded a contract with OMV and has handled all supply base services for Lundin Norway related to the activities in the North Sea since 2013, operated from ASCO’s Risavika base in Tananger.
To remind, Lundin’s recent activity in the Barents Sea included drilling of an exploration well on the Børselv prospect on the Loppa High and completion of two appraisal wells on the Alta discovery, both in late August.
