Wintershall Norge has announced that it has awarded a four-year service contract to Halliburton Norge, with options for an additional four years, to support its exploration and development projects off Norway.
The contract is effective immediately and will be used for drilling-associated services on Wintershall’s Maria development in the Norwegian Sea. The agreement, which contains incentives for efficient well deliveries, can also be used for other Wintershall activities.
“At an uncertain time for the industry, this contract provides a timely boost for the supplier market while laying the groundwork for efficient construction of our operated development and exploration wells over the rest of the decade,” said Bernd Schrimpf, managing director of Wintershall Norge.
Wintershall and Halliburton will immediately begin collaborating on detailed engineering work prior to the start of drilling for the Maria development in the first half of 2017 when Halliburton will provide services supporting the drilling of six development wells on Maria’s subsea templates located in the Norwegian Sea.
