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.
