OGA Awards UKCS Surface and Subsurface Study Contracts

The Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) has awarded four contracts with a combined value of more than £6 million over three years for surface and subsurface studies to improve understanding and maximise value by integrating exploration, development, production, late-life planning and decommissioning in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

Lloyd’s Register, British Geological Survey (BGS) and Schlumberger are the recipients of the contracts, all of which have a three-year term.

Gunther Newcombe, OGA exploration, production and decommissioning director, said: “In order to fulfil OGA’s goal to maximise economic value of the UKCS, it is vital we can independently assess remaining undiscovered resources and improve our geotechnical understanding.

Lloyd’s Register has been awarded two of the four contracts to provide regional exploration maps and regional and field support engineering services to the OGA.

BGS will provide geoscience project services that aid the identification, definition and quantification of leads and prospects and provide input data to the calculation of undiscovered resource volumes.

Schlumberger will provide OGA with subsurface studies and reservoir evaluation services.
