BP Norge AS has awarded Aker Kvaerner a service contract for provision of personnel and equipment for well intervention services for the Ula, Valhall, Hod, Tambar and Skarv fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The contract is for a firm period of five years plus a two year optional period. The estimated contract value for the initial five years is NOK 175 million. The scope of work comprises mechanical wireline services, wireline tractor services and cased hole logging services. The work will be undertaken by the Aker Kvaerner subsidiary, Aker Kvaerner Well Service in Stavanger.
