Today, Smedvig employs approximately 800 people within Well Services on the Norwegian continental shelf. The contract extension for the Statfjord A, B and C platforms, where Smedvig has worked since 1982, and the new contract for the Gullfaks A, B and C platforms will significantly increase the Company's platform drilling activities for Statoil. Combined with the recently awarded platform drilling contract for Shell on the UK continental shelf, the number of people employed by the Well Services division will increase to some 1200 people.
Kjell E Jacobsen, CEO in Smedvig asa, says: "Smedvig has during the last 30 years built up significant competence within platform drilling and developed a highly skilled workforce. The new contract strengthens our position as one of the largest drilling contractors within platform drilling in the North Sea."
