Statoil awards new drilling contracts worth NOK 12 billion


 

Statoil has awarded drilling contracts to Archer, KCA Deutag and Odfjell Drilling for drilling, completion, intervention services, plugging, maintenance and modifications on 18 of Statoil's fixed platforms. 

The contracts take effect from 1 October 2018, initially for a period of four years. The total value is estimated at more than NOK 12 billion. The contracts include three two-year extension options. The work will employ around 2000 people per year.

“Safe and efficient operations are our number one priority. These contract awards will help ensure safe and efficient well deliveries, and sustain a high level of activities on the Norwegian continental shelf. A resilient manpower base capable of performing the required scope of work has been an important selection criterion,” says Geir Tungesvik, Statoil's senior vice president, drilling & well.

Long-term contracts will increase the predictability and ensure stable operating conditions for the suppliers and Statoil.

“The contracts provide us with a good foundation for close and predictable collaboration. We thus facilitate safe and efficient operations. The contracts are aimed at improving our joint competitiveness and enabling a sound level of activities,” says Statoil's chief procurement officer, Pål Eitrheim.

One of the intentions of the contracts is to improve the collaboration between Statoil, the drilling contractors and service contractors. A common incentive programme will stimulate safe and efficient operations through close collaboration and integration of work.

The drilling contracts apply to the following installations:
