Brunei Shell Petroleum Company (BSP) has awarded AqualisBraemar a frame agreement to conduct rig inspection services for the operator.
The agreement is valid for three years with an option to extend the contract for additional periods of three times one year.
Oslo-listed AqualisBraemar – a result of the recent unification between Aqualis Offshore and Braemar Technical Services – will provide rig inspection services, engineering and training services to BSP. AqualisBraemar will manage the contract out of its office in Malaysia with support from other offices in the Asia Pacific when required.
The work will be conducted by AqualisBraemar’s team of rig inspection specialists. The team has many years of experience of providing regulatory compliance and equipment operability assurance to operators and rig owners.
“We launched our rig inspection service early last year and it immediately became of interest to our clients,” Steven Lee, Head of Rig Inspection Services at AqualisBraemar, said. “To attract renowned companies such as BSP confirms that our offering matches operators’ requirements.”
AqualisBraemar provides a wide range of inspection services, from the development through to the execution of bespoke rig inspection and acceptance programs for drillships, semisubmersibles and jackup rigs of all generation types. In addition, the team covers land rigs and provides more focussed and bespoke rig inspections to meet clients’ exact requirements, such as well control, dynamic positioning or integrated control management system inspections.
“Our job is to help BSP select the best rigs available,” Mr Lee said. “A solid rig inspection approach helps reduce risk, increase operational uptime and maximize the asset potential for the rig in question.”
AqualisBraemar’s contract party is Aqualis Offshore Malaysia.
