Norwegian Energy Company, to be renamed BlueNord, has entered a strategic partnership with Semco Maritime to jointly identify, explore, and investigate opportunities in the oil and gas market.
BlueNord is the second largest producer in Denmark, according to its website, which highlights that the company operates in the Danish North Sea with a 36.8 per cent non-operated interest in the Danish Underground Consortium. Semco Maritime describes itself as an engineering and contracting company with deep specialist competencies and more than 40 years of experience in the offshore industry.
According to a statement from Semco Maritime regarding the partnership, it 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 recognized 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 close collaboration with our skilled partners in BlueNord as we make a joint effort to ensure safe operation and a stable energy supply,” says the Senior Vice President of Oil & Gas at Semco Maritime Anders Benfeldt.
The agreement enables BlueNord and Semco Maritime to jointly pursue specific opportunities such as taking over the 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 noted in its statement.
Semco Maritime said it will be responsible for the daily operation of topside facilities as well as tasks related to production optimization, 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 toward long-term maximization 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 of BlueNord.
