Norwegian company add energy said yesterday its add latent subsidiary in Aberdeen had secured contracts worth a total of £7million from Dolphin Drilling and a business unit of Shell.
The offshore asset integrity and well specialist said its year-long deal with Norway-based Dolphin Drilling covered maintenance and integrity services for drillship Bolette and would secure six jobs in its Granite City business.
The work will be based in Aberdeen, Norway and South Korea, where the drillship is being built and scheduled for delivery next year.
Dave Watson, managing director at add latent, based in Carden Place, said the contract was “another example of add latent’s operational growth into international markets and its positioning as a centre of excellence for reliability, maintenance and safety integrity”. Add energy said the deal with Shell Global International also covered maintenance and integrity services and cemented a longstanding relationship between the two companies.
It added: “The latest agreement will allow all of Shell’s operating units across the globe to utilise add latent’s suite of maintenance and integrity solutions, which are targeted specifically towards the oil and gas sector.”
Peter Adam, business development and technical integrity director at add latent, said: “Shell was one of the first major contracts secured by add latent in 2004 and we are extremely proud that our association continues to grow and develop with this latest endorsement.”
