A framework agreement to supply Drilling, Wells and Petroleum Technology resources has been awarded to OPC by Statoil ASA. Starting in January 2014, the 5 year contract runs until 2018 and has options to extend until 2023.
The agreement covers the provision of consultants for the specialist disciplines of Drilling & Wells Engineering & Facilities, Offshore Drilling and QHSE Supervision, Geology, Geophysics, Reservoir and Production Technology, Data Management and Petrophysics.
The geographical scope covers mainly Statoil’s Norwegian operations and may be used for international locations.
Piers Johnson, Managing Director of OPC said: “The contract award is a significant achievement following on from many years of working in Norway previously with non-Norwegian operators as well as Norsk Hydro, Saga and Statoil since 1991. Norway offers an opportunity for OPC to further develop the long standing relationships made there by having established a Norwegian legal entity, OPC Norge A.S in Stavanger. We look forward to working closely and productively with Statoil for many more years.”
Commenting on the contract award, David Carney, Group Business Development Manager said:
“We are delighted to have been selected as a framework supplier by Statoil.”
