French oil-giant Total has inked a seismic supervision deal with UK firm Specialist Marine Consultants (SMC).
The framework agreement will see SMC provide a number of seismic support services globally, with work already underway in the Middle East.
Total would not reveal the contract value but SMC described it as being ” significant in value”.
SMC has worked with a number of large firm across the energy sector, such as Technip, Orsted, E.on, Centrica, Vattenfall and ExxonMobil.
The firm described the deal as an example of its “continued growth” and the “diversification of its services”.
Ian Coates, managing director of SMC, said: “We are delighted with the award of this contract from Total.
“SMC sees this as a significant step in our expansion within the oil and gas market and our work with total represents further growth for us within the seismic exploration sector.”
