STAVANGER -- Global oil services company Archer has secured a four-year contract to deliver additional plug and abandonment (P&A) and related services on the Norwegian Continental Shelf for Repsol Norge AS.

Hugo Idsøe, Archer V.P. and managing director for oiltools, and Jan Vader, Archer V.P. for wireline, together announced that they were very pleased about securing the contract with Repsol Norge.
