This renewed agreement confirms Technip as BP’s contractor of choice until 2017 and could potentially utilise DSVs (Diving Support Vessels) from Technip's fleet for up to 80 days per year.
Bill added: “This type of contract provides multiple benefits to Technip, including high vessel utilisation, a foundation of work spanning many years and further development opportunities for our subsea engineers. This particular award extends our long-term relationship with BP and aligns with Technip’s field development integrated solutions.”
Trevor Garlick, Regional President BP North Sea, said: “We are continuing to invest heavily in our core North Sea assets and contractors with a strong presence in the north east of Scotland are playing a vital role supporting this strategy. We look forward to continuing to work with Technip to safely maintain our existing and new subsea infrastructure.”
