Westcon lands subsea equipment deal with Statoil

Westcon, a provider of solutions, services and products for the energy industry, has been awarded a maintenance contract for subsea tools and equipment at all Statoil base locations in Norway.

Westcon will, together with WellConnection, be in charge of the maintenance and overhaul of defined parts of the subsea equipment Statoil has at its bases, in addition to an option for extension of the scope both onshore and offshore.

The framework agreement has immediate start-up and a duration of two years with an option to extension for up to six additional years.

The company noted that it would perform the maintenance at all bases, with exception for Kristiansund and Mongstad, where WellConnection would support the work.

“The cooperation agreement with WellConnection and the combined expertise we represent, has been a success factor. We now look forward to working together with Statoil and further develop our subsea focus area,” says Steinar Matre, subsea manager at Westcon.

Statoil also recently awarded a nationwide contract to Coast Center Base (CCB) for the maintenance of subsea equipment and tools. The contract includes demobilization, storage maintenance and overhauling of subsea equipment that forms part of Statoil’s underwater tools portfolio.
