The agreement covers the rental of a complete riser package for a period of a minimum of 18 months. The risers will be used in Odfjell’s upcoming operations in West Africa.

According to PSW, the work starts immediately and includes the company’s services of logistics, recertification, preparation and maintenance of the equipment after use.

Equipment and services included in this ‘important’ agreement for PSW Technology will be delivered from its facilities at Mongstad, Norway.

The company defined the contract as sizeable which means that it is worth between NOK 10 million and NOK 50 million (between $1 million and $5 million).

“The agreement demonstrates PSW’s unique expertise and services related to well control and drilling equipment for the rig market”, says Oddbjørn Haukøy, commercial director at Scana ASA.

“PSW has collaborated with Odfjell Drilling since 2010 on the maintenance of subsea and drilling equipment. With this delivery of risers for operations, we are expanding our delivery portfolio to Odfjell Drilling. PSW is grateful for the trust, being the chosen supplier for this important project.”

” … The award of this contract and the continued good cooperation with PSW Group is an important part for our rigs to operate with the quality expected from our customers”, adds Morten Tveit, SVP Operations in Odfjell Drilling.

The award follows the recently signed one-year extension of the frame agreement between PSW Technology and Odfjell Drilling. The agreement includes the provision of maintenance and recertification of marine riser and subsea equipment for all of Odfjell’s drilling units.
