Norwegian oil and gas major Hydro's supplier project in Northwest Russia began to pay off.
Four Russian companies have received certificates they are qualified to deliver to the oil and gas industry on the Norwegian continental shelf.
The results from phase two of the supplier project, which Hydro initiated in June 2003, are now ready. Thirteen Russian companies met this week to study Hydro?s analyses in the project ?The North-West Russia Supplier Development Project?.
These 13 companies were chosen following a charting process in the preliminary phase of the project to be considered as suppliers to the oil and gas industry when developments in the Barents Sea and Northwest Russia are started.
"We found that two companies in Murmansk and two companies in Arkhangelsk could be certified for supplying the Norwegian and Danish continental shelf. The certificates were awarded by a representative from Achilles FKO at the meetings this week. These certificates are stamp of approval and this can be a good start to developing a joint qualification system in North-Russia," says Henriksen.
Hydro will cover the costs of these four companies for the first year of qualification, and they will also have access to the Achilles FKO system. Training in the use of the system was given at the meetings in the two Russian cities.
