- Business & Finance
IKM Subsea has been awarded a contract by Statoil to provide ROV services at the Gina Krog field.
The contract includes ROV services onboard Maersk XLE 3, a jack-up rig which will perform drilling at the Gina Krog field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
“The fact that Statoil reward us with our second drill support contract, indicates that the market has noticed IKM Subseas’s good progress,” says IKM Subsea Business Development Manager, Hans Fjellanger.
IKM Subsea has already won several drill support contracts in Norway, as well as internationally.
“As a Norwegian-owned and independent ROV operator we are very happy to win such an important contract in competition with the big foreign ROV companies. This is a milestone for us and will bring IKM Subsea to an even higher level than we are today.
Fjellanger said that the contract award was in line with the company’s strategy to become a major player in the ROV industry.
