Statoil has, on behalf of relevant licensees, exercised options for previously awarded oil & gas drilling service contracts for fixed installations. Options have been exercised for 17 installations on the Norwegian continental shelf.
In 2012 Statoil awarded contracts for four years with options for three times two-year extension to Archer, KCA Deutag and Odfjell.
