Viking SeaTech has won a long-term contract with the UK business of Maersk Oil.
The deal is the first time the specialist marine services provider has struck an agreement with the company.
Viking SeaTech will supply rig move equipment and storage services for a fixed period of three years with the option for multiple extensions.
John Dick, managing director, Viking SeaTech UK, said: “We are pleased to build our relationship with Maersk Oil in this region and look forward to several successful years together. I’m delighted with the result of the negotiations.
“As part of the arrangement we will keep Maersk Oil’s equipment safe and secure at our premises so it is ready for use in combination with our own for each project stage. We’ll collaborate with Maersk Oil’s marine superintendent and his team and start work immediately.”
The company will support Maersk’s assets in the Dumbarton, Gryphon and Janice fields.
The schedule includes the use of the Sedco 704 semi-submersible.
Earlier this week Viking SeaTech announced that Chris Forde, regional business leader, Asia Pacific, is to become global business leader-president from September 1.
