Norway firm wins BP's $86m LWI contract
Ulsteinvik, Norway, April 23, 2013
Norway-based Island Offshore, a leading name in global Light Well Intervention (LWI) activities, has been awarded a major contract extension worth NOK 0.5 billion ($86.5 million) with BP Exploration Operating Company.
The two-year contract extension, covering 2014 and 2015, has been awarded to Island Offshore and the North Sea RLWI Alliance, which operates three monohull vessels specially designed for well intervention tasks. Island Offshore’s Island Constructor - a 120m long, 8,200 ton, state-of-the-art Ulstein built X-Bow vessel – will perform the scope of work for the client.
Robert Friedberg, managing director of Island Offshore Subsea, said: “We are delighted to continue our successful operations for BP. This is an important extension of a contract that has now been in place for five years.”
“It demonstrates the strength of the relationship we have built with BP and the excellent standard of service that Island Offshore, and its partners in the North Sea RLWI Alliance, have delivered.
“We have acquired some unique experience working with the BP team in the harsh environments west of the Shetland, and we look forward to building on that in the future,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
