AkerBP Inks Subsea Contract with DeepOcean
Aker BP (BP) ASA said it has awarded a contract to DeepOcean for subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) activities.
The contract – worth a minimum of NOK 300 million ($36.8 million) during the initial three years, with an option to continue the activities for an additional six years (2+2+2) – includes remotely operated vehicle (ROV) activities related to subsea IMR on Aker BP-operated assets Valhall, Ula, Ivar Aasen, Alvheim and Skarv.
“This is an important contract for Aker BP. We invited several companies to tender. DeepOcean won this contract due to a very good offer based on the implementation of new technology and safe, cost-effective solutions,” said Olav Henriksen, SVP Projects at Aker BP.
