Well-Safe Solutions has awarded a significant work scope to Schlumberger for the provision of plug and abandonment well services, the company said on Feb. 13.
The scope includes the supply of cementing service, wireline services, wellbore fluid services and fishing, milling and swarf recovery services.
The appointment of Schlumberger was the result of a highly competitive selection process through which Schlumberger demonstrated a highly attuned and complementary strategy for well decommissioning, Well-Safe said. The work will be aboard the Well-Safe Guardian; Well-Safe’s flagship decommissioning asset.
“We are delighted to award this contract to Schlumberger following an extensive tender process. Achieving this major milestone within the timeframes we committed to, will give us access to the necessary technology and ensure our operational readiness for Q2 2020,” Phil Milton, CEO at Well-Safe Solutions, said.
“Schlumberger is pleased to deliver our services for well abandonment to our clients in the North Sea. The appointment of these fully integrated services shall enable significant benefit to the P&A market,” Donald McKay, business development manager at Schlumberger, said.
