Subsea 7, a prominent offshore services provider, has recently announced the extension of its ongoing frame agreement with BP, encompassing subsea construction, inspection, repair, and maintenance (IRM) services for BP's North Sea assets. This extension marks a continued collaboration that has been in place since the initiation of the agreement in 1998.
Under the extended agreement, Subsea 7 will deliver an IRM, survey, and light construction vessel, equipped with both work-class and observation-class remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV).

The contract extension spans two years, maintaining the partnership until the conclusion of 2025.
All project management and engineering responsibilities will continue to be overseen from Subsea 7's operational hub in Aberdeen.
Subsea 7 expresses pride in its longstanding collaboration with BP, having provided secure and efficient IRM services for 25 years. This partnership has been particularly notable in challenging offshore environments, such as the west of Shetland assets.
Steve Wisely, Senior Vice President for Subsea 7 UK & Global Inspection, Repair, and Maintenance, highlights the company's significant contributions to BP's operations in demanding offshore conditions. This extension reinforces Subsea 7's commitment to leveraging its extensive experience and expertise to support BP across various projects.
The estimated value of this contract extension falls within the range of $50 million to $150 million. This financial commitment reflects the substantial nature of the services provided by Subsea 7 to BP and underscores the enduring partnership between the two entities.
In conclusion, this contract extension signifies more than just a continuation of services; it symbolizes the resilience and effectiveness of a collaboration that has spanned several decades, contributing to the success of deep-water projects on a global scale.
