BP signed on January 9, 2019 in its Jakarta offices a cooperation contract with Tenaris to provide high quality OCTG products and accessories with Rig Direct® service, to support drilling activities in Indonesia’s Tangguh region.
Tenaris’s Rig Direct® model integrates the supply of pipes and accessories from the mill to the rig operating under a single QHSE management system, focusing on process and operational efficiency with the objective of lowering overall costs. It means partnering with the customer from the design of the well column to technical assistance at the rig.
“The award of this contract represents a milestone in the OCTG supply in Indonesia. The outcome is the result of outstanding efforts from Tenaris, SKK Migas -the Indonesian government institution focused on managing upstream oil and gas business activities-, and BP. With 20+ years of proven success globally, Tenaris has proven that Rig Direct® is the best practice in the global oil and gas industry, which will support and generate maximum benefit to the country,” said Andrea Previtali, Managing Director Tenaris Indonesia.
SKK Migas and BP have been seeking an innovative way to reduce costs while increasing operation efficiency, Moektianto Soeryowibowo, Head of Country BP Indonesia said, “We are very pleased to cooperate with Tenaris. BP is always committed to carrying out safe and sustainable operations. This cooperation is proof of our effort to modernize and change the way we work to be better, stronger and more efficient.”
Tenaris is bringing Rig Direct® to Indonesia after successful implementation in regions such as Europe, Middle East, North and South America.
