Simmons Edeco, a supplier of wellhead and valve maintenance to the offshore oil and gas industry, has been awarded a what is says is “major” contract by Maersk Oil.
Under the terms of the contract, Simmons Edeco will provide scheduled and unscheduled wellhead maintenance services for all Maersk Oil offshore wells in the Danish North Sea.
Also, the company will refurbish valves and wellhead maintenance equipment, and manage major and consignment stock.
The five-year contract also features three one-year options to renew and will see Simmons support the contract from its new operations base in Esbjerg, Denmark, home to Maersk Oil’s Danish business unit.
Gavin Sherwood, the business development manager for Simmons Edeco, said: “We are pleased to have been given the opportunity by Maersk Oil to contribute to the smooth operation of their wells in the Danish North Sea, and look forward to working with them.”
Although Simmons has a long history of working in the North Sea, this is the first time the company is working for Maersk Oil and in the Danish North Sea.
