Statoil, the global energy company, awarded an offshore catering and facilities contract to Aberdeen-based ESS Offshore. It includes the provision of offshore catering services to the Mariner A oil platform and Mariner B floating storage unit. The contract will also cover housekeeping services, helideck operations and emergency response duties.
The Mariner platform, still under construction, is in the Mariner Field, about 95 miles east of the Shetland Isles. Oil production at the site is expected to start in 2018 and supply more than 250 million barrels. The agreement with ESS Offshore will begin in 2016 to coincide with pre-drilling at the site.
The onshore total FM contract was awarded to 14forty, previously known as Eurest, and covers Statoil’s offices in Aberdeen, London and its Dudgeon wind farm operations base in Great Yarmouth.
Catering, cleaning, security and property services will start immediately in Great Yarmouth and in 2016 in the London office and Aberdeen, with the opening of Statoil’s new UKCS operations centre.
Each contract will last for five years with options to extend to up to four years.
