Aker Solutions has agreed to acquire NPS Energy, which is part of oilfield services company National Petroleum Services. NPS Energy has a strong presence in the Middle East and North Africa, which combined hold approximately 60 per cent of the world's proven oil and gas reserves.
"After the divestment of our non-oil and gas related business in 2010 and the demerger from the EPC contractor Kvaerner in 2011, this is our next major step in the transformation of Aker Solutions into a leading and global oilfield products, systems and services company", says Øyvind Eriksen, executive chairman of Aker Solutions.
"We have established a new operating structure, which more transparently shows our broad range of technologies and customer offerings, and we have introduced regional management in North America and Brazil, which provides our customers with a single point of contact. We are now ready to take this successful formula into a new region, and it is not just another region. It is the most prolific oil and gas region of the world," says Eriksen.
