Shell Norway Award Subsea Service Contract to ABB

Press Release
Thursday, March 07, 2013

ABB signs a $260 million service contract with A/S Norske Shell for operations at the Draugen and Ormen Lange oil & gas fields.

The contract is for a period of 9 years and requires ABB to provide integrated service and support solutions for the Draugen offshore oil platform and the nearby Ormen Lange onshore gas processing plant on the west coast of Norway.

The agreement includes the option of two consecutive two year contracts and covers both the oil and gas fields, as well as future expansions, tie-ins and upgrades. ABB has delivered significant annual savings over five successive years since it was awarded the first service contract by A/S Norske Shell in 2007.

The contract scope includes the system’s integration across the electric, instrument, control and telecommunication systems. A/S Norske Shell sees the continuous improvement of its operations from maintenance through to production as a key element to improved efficiency and success.

“The contract confirms A/S Norske Shell’s confidence in our ability to improve efficiency at their onshore and offshore operations using ABB's proven service concepts and competence,” said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB's Process Automation division. “Our service portfolio constantly evolves to meet our customer’s requirements, which helps secure the future success of our partnership.”
