Proactima supports Sval Energi

On June 2nd, Capricorn Norway became part of Sval Energi after a successful acquisition and subsequent integration project. Proactima has assisted with project management and professional expertise to ensure that the integration project was carried out as planned and in accordance with the objectives that were defined. This was achieved despite the challenges that Covid-19 has presented to the project, the company and the community in recent months.

Initially, Proactima assisted Solveig Gas (now Sval Energi) in being pre-qualified as a licensee on the Norwegian continental shelf in early 2020. When it became clear that they would buy Capricorn Norway, Proactima was asked to assist in this process based on the our long experience with integration projects on the Norwegian continental shelf. Proactima’s effective model for such projects is based on principles of good change management with a clear understanding of where the organization is, and a clear description of where it should be by Day 1, as an integrated company. Furthermore, proper focus and fulfillment of objectives is achieved through good planning and comprehensive risk management across the various workflows, where key personnel from both companies participate.

“Proactima’s expertise, capacity and toolbox have been important parts of the success of the integration project,” says Abdelkarim Abbou, CEO of Sval Energi. “Proactima’s consultants have worked closely with us in the project, guided us safely through the various phases and made sure that we maintained our focus and energy on the right things. I want to take this opportunity to thank the Proactima team for their efforts and look forward to continued good cooperation in other areas and new projects, ”he rounds off.

OKEA and Proactima extend the collaboration for 5 new years

In 2016, OKEA and Proactima signed a framework agreement on the procurement of consultancy services within Proactima’s core areas such as risk management, management system, safety, health & working environment, emergency preparedness, etc.

Proactima has played a key role in establishing OKEA, including establishing a management system and, not least, giving the organizations professional ballast so that OKEA could be approved as a Licensee, and later Operator on the Norwegian continental shelf.

“After very good cooperation and excellent support from Proactima for the first 5 years, it was quite natural for OKEA to further extend the framework agreement. We consider Proactima to be an important contributor to the implementation of OKEA’s strategy and business model. ” Dag Eggan, SVP Business Performance OKEA

Proactima has supported OKEA in establishing and implementing a management system and comprehensive risk management. At the same time, Proactima has through the Trondheim office, with good support from Proactima’s other offices, provided assistance in project management, technical safety, preparedness, health and working environment and other areas. The biggest challenge Proactima so far has been to support OKEA in the acquisition of Draugen from Shell, where Proactima played a key role both in managing and coordinating integration work, and in several of the work streams.

“The journey with OKEA has been exciting and challenging, and we look forward to 5 new years of good cooperation with OKEA,” says account manager and head of Proactima’s Trondheim office Jens Thomas Sagør
