Weatherford International, an oil and gas services company, has been awarded a contract for plug and abandonment (P&A) services by Repsol Norge AS.
Weatherford said that work on the contract would begin in October 2017. The company added that the contract would be completed over a period of three years.
The contract scope encompasses multiple services, including fishing, cutting and milling, casing pulling, and drilling and pinning multiple strings of casing.
Weatherford will provide these services on up to 50 wells which are scheduled to be plugged and abandoned. The company also said that one of the contributing factors for this contract win was the experience of executing similar work on the Beatrice field, in the UK North Sea.
Iain Cook, VP for Europe and Africa at Weatherford, said: “Our team has completed numerous P&A campaigns in the North Sea, and we know the level of discipline required to assure safety and service quality in this environment. We look forward to delivering exceptional results for Repsol Norge AS on these and future wells.”
