An oil and gas services firm with its European headquarters in Great Yarmouth has secured a contract which has helped it expand into Denmark.

Simmons Edeco, which provides wellhead and valve maintenance work, has won a major deal with firm Maersk Oil to work on its Danish North Sea wells.

Although Simmons Edeco has a history of working in the North Sea this will be the first time the two companies have worked together.

Simmons Edeco business development manager Gavin Sherwood said: 'We are pleased to have been given the opportunity by Maersk Oil to contribute to the smooth operation of their wells in the Danish North Sea, and look forward to working with them.'

The five-year agreement requires Simmons Edeco to provide wellhead maintenance services as well as refurbishing valves and wellhead maintenance equipment, and manage major and consignment stock.
