Supply chain company, Aker Solutions, have announced today that they will provide dutyholder services to Marginal Field Development Company (MFDevCo) projects.

As part of the agreement, running parallel to the dutyholder services, Aker will invest resources to assist MFDevCo in locating and assessing potential future projects.

Aker Solutions will deliver operational input throughout the design and delivery phase and ensure safety rules and regulations are maintained.

Alison Pegram, managing director of MFDevCo, said: “Signing this agreement with Aker Solutions is a very significant step for us, ensuring that we have the support and expertise required not only to deliver but also to operate our projects safely and cost-effectively. Aker Solutions’ commitment to innovation and collaboration fits very well with our own philosophy and that of our Consortium; their reputation and experience will lend further credibility and give additional confidence to partners and potential investors at what is an extremely exciting time for the company.”

The terms of the agreement will last five years and, according to MFDevCo, agreed with the intention of forming a long-term working relationship.

Craig Wiggins, SVP who heads Aker Solutions’ production asset services business in the UK, said: “Working with Marginal Field Development Company is an excellent fit for Aker Solutions in the UK. “The relationship will capitalize on our broad capabilities including our strength in ‘installation operator’ services.”
