The agreements are a continuation of a new type of supplier collaboration that was started in 2015, and which has contributed to Spirit Energy delivering its first development on the Norwegian Shelf six months ahead of schedule and 15 percent below budget.
Gro Kyllingstad, SVP & Managing Director of Spirit Energy Norway AS, said: “The collaboration works beyond all expectations and the results are rock solid. Therefore, we have agreed with our suppliers to continue working together in this way for the next five years.”
Kyllingstad: “We associated ourselves with strong suppliers with long experience from developments on the Norwegian shelf. They have been involved in the Oda development from start to finish. We defined the project together; what are the best solutions and how to implement as efficiently as possible. Usually, the oil companies define the work and then put it out to tender. We believed we would get better results through closer cooperation. It has turned out to be true.”
