Aker BP has awarded a new frame agreement to DNV GL, covering a wide range of safety, verification, inspection and classification services across its installations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The five-year contract, which includes options for extension, will see DNV GL experts integrated into Aker BP’s organization to provide decision-making support and stand-alone assessments.

“This contract represents an important step forward in DNV GL’s long relationship with BP Norway and Det norske oljeselskap, as the companies merge to form Aker BP,” said Kjell Eriksson, regional manager, Norway, DNV GL – Oil & Gas.

“The integrated technical assurance and advisory services included in the frame agreement will bring efficiency gains to Aker BP through a blend of state-of-the art technology and deep technical expertise across a broad range of disciplines.”

Rolf Kristian Nystein, Supply chain manager at Aker BP, said: “We have run a robust tendering process, and are happy to award the contract to DNV GL. Due to the timing of the tendering process we were able to combine the scopes of both companies and establish one joint contract for Aker BP delivering considerable synergies. We are looking forward to work closely with DNV GL to drive further continuous improvement in our operations.”
