According to oil and gas services company, the new contract with Shell Gabon includes carrying out maintenance, integrity and execution (MIE) services for asset in the field, which was discovered 50 years ago and has been producing oil since 1967.

Stig H. Christiansen, CEO of add energy, said, “These contracts are strong examples of repeat business with Shell, a relationship that has been developed and enhanced over many years. It allows us to prove our commitment to long-term partnerships and to consistently deliver on our quality goal. We are proud to continue to serve Shell in the area of asset integrity management in different countries and for different work scopes.”

Peter Adam, executive vice-president of add energy, added that the new projects for Shell Gamba are critical to position assets to run as safely as possible and in alignment with the Shell global performance standards.

“We’re pleased to continue to work with Shell to help in lowering operational risk, improving performance and to help our client continue to achieve operational excellence.”

Another contract with Shell Canada’s Albian project involves the development of bills of materials (BoMs). The Athabasca Oil Sands Project involves the mining of oil from Canada’s oil sands. Oil is separated from clay, sand and water before being converted into synthetic crude.

According to the Norway-headquartered company, add energy’s new contract is a continuation of the maintenance, integrity and execution services already supplied to Shell by adding on this mining operation and also the Scotford Upgrader — a facility at the Albian project which processes the crude bitumen from oil sands into a wide range of synthetic crude oils.
