Drilling contractor Odfjell has been awarded a five-year contract with Taqa in the UK.
The platform drilling and maintenance services deal covers the North Cormorant, Harding, Tern Alpha, Brae Alpha and East Brae installations.
Odfjell has not disclosed the value of the deal.
The firm has been the incumbent on three of these installations since 2017 and will replace the existing deal with Brae Alpha and East Brae.
Taqa acquired the latter two platforms from RockRose Energy last year following a legal dispute over future decommissioning costs.
The new contract will be effective from June 15, 2021.
Executive vice president of Odfjell Drilling, Elisabeth Haram, said: “Odfjell Drilling is committed to delivering safe and quality operations, and we look forward to continuing to work together with Taqa in the years to come”.
In 2017, Odfjell won work which also included the Cormorant Alpha and Eider installations, both of which are now entering the decommissioning phase.
Taqa said last year that a plan was being drafted for the Cormorant Alpha topsides.
The firm submitted a decom plan for Eider in 2019.
