Kongsberg Inks Statoil Deal

Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Gruppen ASA, has signed a frame agreement with Statoil for services related to Statoil’s dynamic process simulators.

The frame agreement includes that Kongsberg will maintain, modify and upgrade Statoil’s existing dynamic process simulators, and is valid for up to 12 years including all installations in Norway and abroad.

Kongsberg has delivered and maintained dynamic process simulators to 27 of Statoil’s installations since 1988.

How it works

Dynamic process simulators are useful in all phases of the life cycle in an oil and gas field. By utilizing its power, a process simulator can predict more cost efficient field development, during operations and processes, and ultimately decommissioning. By analyzing both behavior and processes, and using it for operator training, it can help increase cost efficiency and minimize HSE risk.

“We are very satisfied with this frame agreement,” says Egil Haugsdal, president of Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies. ”Statoil is the key operator on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and is also an important player in the international industry. Being chosen by Statoil is a signal that we have added value to their operations during the years since the first delivery, and it also indicates that we have solutions the industry needs in times more cost focused than ever.”

Kongsberg Digital

Kongsberg announced in February that all oil & gas related engineering services will be compiled and continued by Kongsberg Maritime. Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies’ largest division, Software & Services, will be part of Kongsberg Digital. As a consequence, Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies will be discontinued in 2016 and will no longer be a separate business area within Kongsberg. This contract will be continued by Kongsberg Digital.
