SMV Engineering AS

SMV was established in 1972 as Skurve Mekaniske Verksted to serve the growing Norwegian offshore industry, being ideally situated on Sotra outside Bergen, the base for some of Norway’s largest oilfields. Today the company has strategically located offices in Norway, UK and Singapore.

We specialise in the management of hook-up, commissioning/start-up & pre-operations activities, and have broadened our experience  since the mid 90’s with direct involvement in the fast growing FPSO market.

In addition we now offer complete Vessel & Rig Lay-Up services, together with our marine partner. Given the complexity of the later generation vessels & rigs, with ever more sophisticated systems, it is important to select not only the ideal lay-up site, but the type of lay-up, whether it be ”Hot, Warm or Cold” stacking. Whatever your requirements are, we can develop and implement specific solutions to meet your needs.

Our objective is to assist & support our clients to safely deliver quality, on schedule and within budget.

By maintaining a core team of experienced individuals, who worked for multi-national oil & gas providers, we have first hand knowledge of the operating companies working practises, their requirements, and the problem areas to be dealt with during project development phase and later in the production phase.

SMV is able to add value to all clients, by providing ”Fit for Purpose” strategies, based upon ”Lessons Learnt” both as a client & contractor. This experience has been gained from various geographic locations and hence on market understanding & knowledge to provide the best execution strategy.

We can provide individuals to supplement the companies project teams or provide a complete project management service to run dedicated projects, perform technical and progress audits on existing projects, or assist in setting up control systems.

Our staff have been solving complex challenges and delivering successful projects for Multi-National oil & gas providers, independents and blue chip contractors for over 35 years. During this period we have also provided key project management and engineering personnel to our customers to assist them with delivery of their projects.

Whether you require individual or a complete service, we can provide expertise during all phases;
