Aker Solutions won a framework agreement to provide maintenance and modifications services at BP-operated oil and gas fields offshore Norway.

The contract has a fixed period of five years valued at as much as NOK 3.2 billion. It also contains options to extend the agreement by as many as four years. The accord starts on December 1, 2015 on expiration of an existing agreement for similar services.

"This contract was won in stiff international and national competition and will help secure jobs on the west coast of Norway as well as provide crucial support for our development of operations farther north," said Per Harald Kongelf, head of Aker Solutions in Norway. "We’re very pleased to continue our strong partnership with BP on the Norwegian shelf."

The agreement is for work on the North Sea fields Ula, Tambar, Hod and Valhall as well as the Skarv deposit in the Norwegian Sea. The work will be managed and executed by Aker Solutions' maintenance, modifications and operations units in Stavanger and Sandnessj?en and at the company's fabrication yard in Egersund.

"Aker Solutions is a very experienced and capable supplier that has over many years had large and demanding deliveries to BP both in development projects and in the production phase," said Eldar Larsen, vice president of operations for BP in Norway. "The company has shown great flexibility and willingness to develop and use local businesses, which is especially important for activity in Sandnessj?en."

Aker Solutions has worked with BP in Norway for more than twenty years and signed the first long-term framework agreement contract of this type with the company in 1999. "We look forward to continuing the constructive relationship we've developed over the years with BP as we work together to find the most cost-effective solutions for these fields," said Knut Sandvik, head of Aker Solutions' maintenance, modifications and operations business.
