Our customers clearly see the benefit of integrating this expertise in their own organization,” says CEO Oddbjørn Kopperstad in Acona AS.
In practical terms the agreement means that the operator, Bayerngas, receives essential services within planning and executing of its drilling operations from Acona. Under the agreement, a well management team from Acona will work integrated with Bayerngas ‘ organization and together constitute a unified management team of Bayerngas’ drilling operations.
Bayerngas is a partner in the Leiv Eiriksson consortium, and the drilling rig Leiv Eirksson will drill its first wells.
