Aker BP ASA has awarded frame agreements with three suppliers for the provision of Platform Supply Vessels.

The following suppliers signed the agreements in Stavanger on Thursday 28 February.

  • Simon Møkster Shipping AS
  • Eidesvik Offshore ASA
  • Solstad Offshore ASA

The duration of the frame agreements is initially for three years, with the option of two additional periods of two years each.

“We will together with the tree suppliers work towards a more integrated concept involving the entire chain of offshore logistics, where Platform Supply Vessels (PSV) is an essential part. Aker BP aims to reorganize the value chain to drive significant improvements and increase efficiency in how we operate our assets on the Norwegian Continental Shelf,” says SVP Improvement Per Harald Kongelf in Aker BP, and continues:

“The establishment of these frame agreements is the first step towards a strategic partnership with selected suppliers, with the potential to evolve into a future alliance concept.”

Aker BP will together with the selected suppliers work to develop commercial compensation models, based upon performance driven KPI’s. The goal is to secure Aker BP’s need for safe and reliable transportation of cargo to the offshore facilities.
