As the management contractor Aker Solutions will be responsible for managing the construction and maintenance work for BSP's offshore assets, and transferring competence to enable local businesses to gradually assume responsibility for the work.
"This is another very important contract for Aker Solutions in South East Asia and a strategic development for our maintenance, modifications and operations business which has traditionally been North Sea based," says Tore Sjursen, head of Maintenance, Modifications and Operations (MMO) in Aker Solutions.
The contract duration is five years with an option of two additional years (5+2). The work for BSP will commence immediately and the first offshore campaign managed by Aker Solutions in Brunei is scheduled for 2013.
Local business development will be a priority. Aker Solutions will work to develop local business expertise to manage and deliver offshore construction and maintenance services to BSP and thereby contributing to the safe and continuous production from the offshore assets.
Long track record

"We look forward to further develop Aker Solutions' relationship to Brunei Shell Petroleum, and expand our operations in this region", says Sjursen.
