Norway’s Aker Solutions has won an agreement to provide BP with maintenance and modifications services at the company’s oil and gas fields offshore Norway.

The contract is for a fixed five year period and starts December 1 when the current contract runs out, with the value of the deal worth up to NOK 3.2bn ($370m).

Per Harald Kongelf, head of Aker Solutions in Norway, commented: “This contract was won in stiff international and national competition and will help secure jobs on the west coast of Norway as well as provide crucial support for our development of operations further north.”

The agreement covers North Sea fields Ula, Tambar, Hod and Valhall as well as the Skarv deposit in the Norwegian Sea.
