Learn about our history
Option started as an IT development company (Option Development) with close ties to oil & gas. We discovered early the need for specialized IT services for this customer group.
Option was founded in 2007. In September of 2008, we secured a contract to mobilise and operate Aker Barents for Aker Exploration. This was a success that were repeated on several rigs.
For Det norske oljeselskap, Option were tasked to design the office infrastructure and IO rooms on a XLE2CJ-70 rig under construction in Singapore.
Smedvik ASA / VENI AS are the new owners of Option.
The company is increasing its geographical borders and moving abroad: UK, South- and West Africa.
When Aker Exploration merged with Det norske oljeselskap (now AkerBP) the following year, we had the opportunity to buy out the server park and other equipment. This enabled us to offer our services and now specialised know-how to other operator companies.
For Lundin, Option were tasked to design the IO room and required infrastructure on a new SeaDrill rig - Deepsea Bollsta.
Option signed a framework contract with our first rig company Island Drilling for the supply of ICT services. We also landed a 5-year framework contract with OMV with the possibility for another 5 years.
Our leading star is to be an admired
ICT provider for the Ocean Industry
