Optime Subsea Wins with Aker BP

Aker BP has selected Optime Subsea as a provider of well access system and services on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) for the next 2 years, with extension options.

Optime Subsea will provide its “Subsea Controls and Intervention Light System” (SCILS) well access system for the work.

Optime Subsea’s CEO Jan-Fredrik Carlsen said: “This is a milestone for us, and with Aker BP choosing us as their partner, it shows the industry what our system is actually capable of offering.”

Aker BP will in the next 2 years use Optime Subsea’s SCILS and related services, for their well access operations on the NCS. The system is being deployed this spring on Aker BP’s Jette as part of their plug and abandoment operations and Skogul for its installation campaign.

Using Optime Subsea’s SCILS ties well into our strategy of continuing improvement and optimization of our well access operations. The SCILS offers both cost savings and improved safety in mobilization, operation and customization towards our subsea wells. We look forward to a productive collaboration with Optime Subsea, to continuing improving the efficiency of our subsea wells on the NCS,” said Mads Rodsjo, VP D&W Functional Excellence in Aker BP.

The value of the contract is confidential, but according to Jan-Fredrik Carlsen, it is a catalyst for the company; “We are very pleased with the award and the ability to work with an operator such as Aker BP. Aker BP and similar operators are often the driver for introducing new and more optimized technology in our industry. So without disclosing a dollar amount, the value is substantial for Optime Subsea. I would go as far to say it is a milestone for all such well access operations throughout the industry. There is now a field proven system that considerably reduces the time, personnel, space and cost compared to other existing solutions.”
