Equinor has awarded a contract for services within insulation, scaffolding and surface treatment (ISO) on the Johan Sverdrup field to Kaefer Energy AS on May 21.
Awarded under an already existing framework agreement for operations, the contract has an estimated value of more than NOK 700 million (about US$80 million). This includes both ordinary operations and maintenance work, and work associated with Phase 2 of the project.
Equinor said Kaefer Energy AS was selected as an ISO supplier based on high-quality performance under the existing framework agreement, combined with their competitiveness.
The delivery will cover all the five Johan Sverdrup installations, and in addition to ISO maintenance will also include completion work related to phasing in of the project phase 2. The Johan Sverdrup field comes as an addition to the offshore maintenance portfolio KAEFER Energy already cares for Equinor; the fields Troll, Åsgard and Kristin.
“We are incredibly happy today,” Bård Bjørshol, Kaefer CEO, said. “This is a strategically very important assignment for KAEFER Energy, and a proof that Equinor recognizes our efforts and the results we achieve.”
