Starting in January 2014, the agreement mainly covers Statoil’s operations in Norway, but the services may be performed globally. The five-year contract has extension options which could see it extend to 10 years in total.
Also contributing to the award is AGR Consultancy’s alliance partner OTG Drilling & Intervention AS.
Based in Stavanger, the Norwegian AGR Consultancy team, part of global oil and gas service provider AGR, has grown considerably in recent years and is aiming for further growth under new manager Thomas Veseth Saue. As well as Norway, AGR Consultancy has teams in Aberdeen, Perth and Houston and associated offices in all the main oil hubs around the world.
Welcoming the latest contract win, Sjur Talstad, AGR’s Executive Vice President Norway and Russia, said: “We currently have a contract with Statoil for consultancy services and the company’s renewal of the agreement demonstrates how satisfied they have been with the quality of our consultants.
“The Consultancy division in Stavanger is a very important part of what we offer from our hub there, along with our Well, HSEQ and Reservoir services.
“AGR has placed consultants for more than 180 clients in over 100 locations. What gives AGR Consultancy the advantage in this competitive market is being a business division within AGR, with its unrivalled expertise in well, reservoir and facilities engineering.”
