Wintershall Norge AS has awarded a series of four year contracts for supply of well completion equipment and services for its operated drilling activities in Norway. The contracts have been awarded to six companies including Halliburton which will provide the largest share of the work. Tendeka, TCO, Schlumberger, PTC and Interwell will supply the remaining equipment and services.
The contracts will be used for completion of wells on Wintershall’s Maria development in the Norwegian Sea as well as the North Sea. There is also an option to use the contracts for Wintershall’s operated Skarfjell development in the future.
«These contracts are a win-win business for Wintershall and our partners in Norway. They give us the certainty of a robust solution for our drilling activities in the months and years to come, as well as the flexibility to use them on our developments in the future. In a challenging market environment, these are also important contracts for the Norwegian supplier market,» said Bernd Schrimpf Wintershall Norge Managing Director.
The four year contracts, which can be extended for up to four additional years, include supply of downhole valves, packers, liner hangers, injection systems, gas lift equipment and sand screens.
«These are competitively tendered contracts that reflect the current market conditions. After a thorough procurement process, we are satisfied that we have signed a series of contracts that will deliver maximum value to Wintershall and our partners on our Maria development and on the rest of our operated assets,» said Hugo Dijkgraaf, Wintershall Maria Project Director.
Wintershall and its partners will drill six subsea wells on the Maria field in the Norwegian Sea in 2017.
