Spanish oil company Repsol has selected Deep Sea Mooring (DSM) to provide a range of mooring services for their drilling operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
DSM will be responsible for marine engineering and supplying the mooring equipment. The company will also assist in offshore operations, including both pre-lay and rig move.
Åge Straume, CEO of Deep Sea Mooring said: “Winning this contract further proves that major energy companies appreciate our experience, robust technology and competence in delivering complete mooring systems for the harsh environment of the North Sea.”
He added that this was the first time the two companies have worked together: “It’s always exciting to showcase our expertise with a new client and we look forward to developing a solid and long-term partnership with Repsol.”
The framework agreement is set to start immediately and last four years including options. Deep Sea Mooring will manage the contract from its headquarters in Bergen.
