OWIGLOBAL AWARDS: AKOFS Offshore show Best Example of Collaboration
With collaboration recognised as one of the most important targets for the oil and gas industry to pursue, the Best Example of Collaboration was a hotly contested category.

Ultimately there could be only one winner and AKOFS Offshore has been recognised by judges in this category for the AKOFS Seafarer which has offered to Equinor a unique integrated service organised under a OneTeam model. The services include provision of a light well intervention unit, dual work ROV systems, slickline and e-line wireline conveyance, tractor services and standard wireline tooling.

The services are provided through four entities ­– AKOFS Offshore, IKM Subsea, Archer and Welltec –in close cooperation with Equinor and its CPI contractors onboard. The OneTeam culture is a worthy winner which will no doubt serve as an inspiration for the wider community to engage in collaborative efforts with more enthusiasm
