BJ Services Company announced this month that it has been awarded a contract by RWE Dea UK Exploration Limited, to provide well services support in the southern North Sea.

The contract calls for BJ Services to install multiple 2-3/8-inch chrome velocity strings using a variety of services, including coiled tubing (CT), fluid pumping and nitrogen.

BJ Services will carry out the services on wells W1 and W2 on the Windermere platform located in the UK southern gas basin in Block 49/09. Engineering, operational and administrative support will be provided by well services personnel at the company’s marine base in Great Yarmouth, England.

The well service programme is scheduled to take place in Q4 2008.

“Although the Windermere operation represents the first time BJ Services will work on behalf of RWE-Dea in this capacity, we are confident that with our in-depth experience in coiled tubing services and outstanding track record in running insert strings, the operation will be a success,” explained John Anderson, Region Vice President for Europe and West Africa of Well Services for BJ Services.
