Aker Solutions has signed an agreement with BP Norge AS to supply sub-surface consultancy services on the Norwegian continental shelf. Contract value is undisclosed.

Under the three-year agreement, Aker Solutions' geo business will deliver operational geology services from BP's onshore facility in Stavanger, Norway, and wellsite geology services from BP's assets offshore Norway.

"The agreement covers support to the production drilling activities at BP's Skarv field, which will ensure a steady flow of work for us over the coming years. In turn, this enables BP to get the highest possible return on investment from our geologists and the know-how they have built up over many years on the Norwegian continental shelf," says Erik Sverre Jenssen, president of Aker Solutions' geo business.

"This is the first time BP is buying wellsite geology services from us, and we look forward to working with them," adds Jenssen.

Aker Solutions' sub-surface consultancy Aker Geo AS delivers services through the whole subsurface value chain, from exploration to production. The unit comprises a team of 60 geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers. Its main fields of activity are geological and geophysical interpretation, petrophysics, reservoir modelling and simulation, wellsite geology as well as production technology and operations.
