Norwegian oil and gas consultancy Add Energy said today that its new £15million contract with BP would keep at least 30 of its employees in work for the next three years.
Add Energy will provide global maintenance data centralisation services to help BP improve efficiency across all of its upstream operating regions.
In April, Add inked a similar deal with Shell, said at the time to be worth £3million.
Stavanger-headquartered Add has nine bases in seven countries, including one in Aberdeen.
It is thought the BP contract will be managed by Add’s offices in Aberdeen and Houston.
Add executive vice president Peter Adam said: “BP was looking for a cost-effective and consistent approach to the cleansing and enhancing of its maintenance and materials data, and we have a reputation for delivering.
“With this contract we have been able to demonstrate that whilst we are small enough to care we are big enough to get the job done, backed up with a wealth of experience in delivering corporate visions through regional implementation”
“This important contract win for Add Energy’s asset and integrity management team in the current market place is a positive sign that it is no longer business as usual.
“Operators are looking for contract performance and value for money, whilst assuring the safety of their assets remains the foremost concern.
“This creates an opportunity for service providers like us who have a record for delivery excellence and innovation.”
