The wells will be drilled by the drilling rig Deep Sea Stavanger and most of the work will be done by Halliburton.

The contracts will be used for the completion of wells on the Norwegian company’s Maria development, located in the Norwegian Sea and the North Sea, with the option to use the contracts for the company’s Skarfjell development in the future, Wintershall informed.
The contracts have a duration of four years and can be extended for up to four additional years. The scope of work includes the supply of downhole valves, packers, liner hangers, injection systems, gas lift equipment and sand screens.

After a thorough procurement process, we are satisfied that we have signed a series of contracts that will deliver maximum value to Wintershall and our partners on our Maria development and on the rest of our operated assets,” said Hugo Dijkgraaf, Wintershall Maria Project Director. 

Wintershall and its partners are expected to drill six subsea wells on the Maria field in the Norwegian Sea throughout 2017.
