Statoil Awards Snorre Contract to Aker Kvaerner
A four-year contract worth NOK 400 million for maintenance on the two Statoil-operated Snorre platforms in the Norwegian North Sea has been awarded to Aker Kvaerner.
Aker Offshore Partner has primary responsibility for this work, which is due to start on July 1st. About 150 people will be involved. The Snorre contract is a frame agreement covering maintenance and modifications on the two installations
Statoil placed similar contracts for its existing platforms in the Tampen area of the North Sea – which also embraces Snorre – with Aker Kvaerner last year.
Statoil took over as operator on Snorre from Norsk Hydro on January 1st.
With the latest contract, Statoil comes closer to its target of having a single supplier on its Tampen fields. The maintenance jobs awarded to Aker Kvaerner can be extended up to 2011.
