Encouraging signs of oil and gas activity on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) show positives remain amid the current challenges of the sector, according to global mooring and marine specialists Viking SeaTech.
The company is attending Offshore Northern Seas (ONS), Norway’s premier oil and gas exhibition, held in Stavanger this week.
John Dick, managing director for Viking SeaTech’s North Sea Region, says, “We are confident in the potential of the market. That’s why we’ve maintained a substantial amount of equipment, including chains, anchors, buoys and wires, at our operational bases in Mongstad and Slovag. As the industry meets at this year’s ONS we believe operators in Norway are exploring opportunities that will require semi-sub and jack-up rigs and Viking SeaTech are positioned to help with these opportunities.”
Norway continues to be a core market for Viking SeaTech and ONS offers the chance to meet existing clients and explore new leads.
“Like these businesses and many others, Viking SeaTech has adapted to the downturn. We have retained our operational expertise within the North Sea Region. Norway and UK projects are arranged through the same point of contact and we are able to deploy equipment quickly whenever and wherever our customers need it.”
Viking SeaTech has expanded its marine engineering team to enhance its expertise as it focuses on its core business competencies.
