Aker extends BP contract

Aker win: BP

Oslo-based Aker Solutions has won a Nkr1.8 billion ($302 million) contract for work with BP offshore Norway.

The company has signed a framework agreement to provide engineering, modifications and maintenance services for BP’s oil and gas fields in the region.

Work will take place over two years, with a potential to extend that for another four years.

The agreement kicks in on 1 June, following the expiration of a similar agreement for the same services.

Aker will carry out work on the Ula, Tambar, Hod, Skarv and Alhall field offshore Norway, carrying out studies, maintenance and modification project work. The company will carry out a number of decommissioning services for the major.

The companies have worked together for more than 20 years and signed the first long-term framework agreement of this nature in 1999.
