A major frame agreement for drilling and well technology consultancy manpower has been awarded by Statoil to AGR Consultancy in Norway.
Starting in January 2014, the agreement mainly covers Statoil's operations in Norway, but the services may be performed globally. The five-year contract has extension options which could see it extend to 10 years in total.
Based in Stavanger, the Norwegian AGR Consultancy team, part of global oil and gas service provider AGR, has grown considerably in recent years and is aiming for further growth under new manager Thomas Veseth Saue. As well as Norway, AGR Consultancy has teams in Aberdeen, Perth and Houston and associated offices in all the main oil hubs around the world.
Welcoming the latest contract win, Sjur Talstad, AGR's Executive Vice President Norway and Russia, said: 'We currently have a contract with Statoil for consultancy services and the company's renewal of the agreement demonstrates how satisfied they have been with the quality of our consultants.
