ONS 2018: Equinor renews BHGE pact on Norwegian rigs


Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) has received a three-year extension to a subsea services agreement with Equinor offshore Norway.

BHGE will provide support for several installations including Troll, Snorre B and Tordis/Vigdis, with the deal marking more than 40-years of collaboration between the two companies.

Services support will be provided locally by BHGE’s Stavanger facility, one of the company’s largest sites globally for subsea services, and its offices in Bergen.

Tom Huuse, Norway regional leader for BHGE’s oilfield equipment division, said: “We are committed to reinforcing our long-standing collaboration and relationship with Equinor, and this continued partnership not only builds on that but also provides a framework for them to benefit from our extensive in-country capabilities and the expertise of more than 1,600 committed and experienced employees.

“We look forward to further supporting Equinor in enhancing uptime, driving operational efficiency and boosting productivity.”

BHGE was recently chosen as Equinor’s main drilling and well services provider for eight rigs responsible for the development of three of its most prolific and active fields in the NCS – Troll, Oseberg and Grane.
