Axess Group has successfully landed a Total Rig Integrity Management (TRIM) contract on all KCA Deutag’s offshore drilling operations on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). This significant award covers eight fixed drilling platforms and the additional two Category J jack-up rigs, Askeladden and Askepott, arriving from South Korea this year.
Initially awarded for four years, the agreement includes options for two 2-year extensions, potentially running for a total of 8 years. The scope encompasses Enterprise of Competence, Drilling equipment inspections, Risk based inspections, Dropped object prevention, Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and Rope access.
Axess Group’s CEO, Børge Gjeldvik, said: “This project places Axess in a prime position to expand on the great collaboration we have established over the years with KCAD covering engineering solutions. We are extremely satisfied to be awarded with this key long-term contract as it further increases our market share on the NCS.”
KCAD has a history of strong and lasting cooperation with Axess on a number of engineering disciplines. Satisfaction from the previous years’ integrity management solutions, the TRIM service delivery concept, and our experience working with the CAT J units in South Korea, are the key factors for winning this award.
