Odfjell Technology secures two-year whipstock services contract with TPAO

Published 15.04.2024

Odfjell Technology, an integrated supplier of well services technology and engineering solutions, has been awarded a two-year contract by state-owned oil company, Türkiye Petrolleri Anonim Ortaklığı (TPAO), for the provision of 10 whipstock systems and related services.

Odfjell Technology will supply whipstock and anchor systems, and will be providing services for both open and cased holes requirements. The contract serves TPAO’s onshore activity, primarily located in the eastern and southeastern regions of Türkiye, and includes an option to extend by a further two years.

The whipstock systems will be delivered to TPAO stock and related service tools will be mobilised from Odfjell Technology’s Romania facilities when required.

“Having worked with TPAO for several years already, this is a significant contract which emphasises our track record and commitment to delivering localised expertise and services to the wider region,” said Alex Gomoescu, VP Continental Europe at Odfjell Technology. “We pride ourselves on the agile, dynamic and extensive services we provide across our global well intervention services. The reliable and high-quality service our expert teams deliver enabled the continuation of work with TPAO and we look forward to further strengthening our relationship with the company in the coming years.”

TPAO performs oil and gas exploration, drilling, well completion and production. With over 200 wells across 44 rigs, the national oil company’s primary goal is to reduce Türkiye’s oil and gas import.

“We have been working with Odfjell Technology in recent years on spot requirements where we have an immediate need, and always received high quality services,” said Mehmet Uğur Anadut, Material Planning Manager at TPAO. “Having a reliable partner for such an ad-hoc requirement for the next two years will be instrumental in supporting operations planning.”
