Semco Maritime is an engineering and contracting company with deep specialist competencies, more than 40 years of experience in the offshore industry and more than 1,000 dedicated people currently engaged in offshore operation support across Denmark, Norway, and the UK. The strategic partnership is an initial important step in potentially pursuing opportunities across various maturity phases from exploration work over investigation efforts to preparation and actual execution and operation.
“We are immensely proud to enter this strategic partnership with a highly recognised energy company such as BlueNord and see a wealth of opportunities in the oil and gas space in the coming years. We will bring our expertise and experience to this partnership and look forward to enjoying a close collaboration with our skilled partners in BlueNord as we make a joint effort to ensure safe operation and a stable energy supply,” says Senior Vice President, Oil & Gas, Semco Maritime, Anders Benfeldt.
The agreement enables BlueNord and Semco Maritime to jointly pursue specific opportunities such as taking over operation of already existing assets or developing and operating new fields as well as making other relevant investments or taking on other related activities to the mutual benefit of the partners. Semco Maritime will be responsible for the daily operation of topside facilities as well as tasks related to production optimisation, maintenance and integrity planning, modifications, procurement, logistics and warehousing, and emergency response.
“The agreement forms a solid foundation for further development of the parties’ collaboration and operational and innovation capabilities. For BlueNord this is a tangible and important step in our ongoing development towards long term maximisation of the value from our existing assets and opportunities. Since 2019, Denmark has been core for us and is where we focus our long-term ambitions. With this agreement we continue to build our capabilities enabling us to provide Europe with the energy it needs both now and in the future,” said Marianne Eide, Chief Operating Officer in BlueNord.
