Engineering firm, KOSO Kent Introl (KKI) won a contract to supply all control and choke valves to Statoil/Aker Solutions for the Johan Sverdrup offshore field. KKI anticipates manufacturing and delivering more than 400 valves over a three-year period.
Stuart Billingham, sales director at Kent Introl comments: “We are delighted to announce this contract with Statoil and Aker Solutions. It has been awarded following Kent Introl successfully securing a long-term frame agreement with Statoil until at least 2020, with further options to extend to 2026. This is the third time Kent Introl has held frame agreements with Statoil for its control and choke valve products, having previously secured contracts from 1996–2001 and 2007–2015. We look forward to continuing our relationship over the long-term.”
