Tenders for BB-OS/5 from Petrom

Vol 5, PW 16 (26 Sep 01) News in Brief

Romanian state oil company Petrom has floated tenders for oilfield services at its BB-OS/5 block, where it plans to drill one well in phasetwo of its work programme.

Tenders were floated on 7th September for drilling, mud engineering, mud logging, cementing, wireline logging, production testing and completion services. Closing date is 1st October.

We learn Petrom has pre-qualified Schlumberger, Halliburton and HSL India for wireline logging, whereas Fugro Geonics and Elcome Survey have been prequalified for the seabed survey. Separately, we learn Petrom could bring in its own drilling rig as it is "disappointed" at the pre-qualification response from drilling contractors.
