Odfjell Technology is all set to complete TRS, Fishing and Rental Services Contract for Black Sea Oil & Gas

Published 09.05.2022

An integrated supplier of offshore operations, well services technology and engineering solutions, Odfjell Technology are all set to complete its three-year contract for the Black Sea Oil & Gas. The company is a noted global leader in TRS hands-free solutions and innovative drilling tools, delivering safe, reliable services that create value for its clients across the globe.

Black Sea Oil & Gas (BSOG) is a Romanian energy company owned by Carlyle International Energy Partners and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and is active in developing its conventional gas resources in the Blacksea. Their current portfolio comprises the Midia Gas Development (MGD) project, which consists of the onshore and offshore infrastructure and the two gas production licenses at the Ana and Doina gas fields.

Execution of this project started in 2021, and Odfjell Technology expects to complete it within this summer. As part of the contract, the company has delivered its entire product line, including TRS, fishing, and rental services. Their leading-edge CRT technology solutions have already been implemented successfully in the Black Sea offshore location. The project has been executed with full support from Odfjell Technology Romania, from the company’s Ploiesti base.

Odfjell Technology has had to deal with several challenges for ensuring the smooth progress of the project. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has taken adequate measures to provide top-quality performance and service quality. The amount of time required for personnel to spend on this project was increased because of the quarantine requirements. As a result, the regular rotational schedules of the company had to be adapted, and as per the risk assessment carried out by the project team, sizing of the engineering pool was critical to ensure on-time delivery and no delays. Dealing with the current geopolitical situation was another serious challenge to address.

The goal of this project for Odfjell Technology is to deliver top-quality services throughout the drilling campaign. So far, minimal NPT and timely delivery and the company’s willingness to address every challenge during the project’s progression have resulted in efficient delivery and contributed to on-time well delivery.

BSOG Drilling Manager, Allan Gibson, has been very impressed with the quality of service and equipment received from Odfjell. The Odfjell personnel have provided a safe, professional service whilst drilling the 4 x Ana Platform wells, and we look forward to continuing our close collaboration with Odfjell on the Subsea Doina well.

“Odfjell Technology is exceedingly pleased and proud to be part of the MGD project and ongoing drilling campaign, while remaining result oriented and dedicated to safety.

We express our deep gratitude to our offshore workers and to our valued customer, BSOG, for their continuous efforts in reaching the region energy milestones.” said Alexandru Gomoescu, Odfjell Technology CESEE Regional Manager.
