Offshore multi-disciplined teams for North Sea operator



Major North Sea Operator




Upstream oil & gas

Associated capabilities


Stork were contracted to provide engineering, maintenance and modification workscopes for a major North Sea Operator, across all North Sea Assets and downstream businesses. This included project management, turnarounds, mechanical, electrical, instrumentation & rigging, fabrication, access, insulation, coatings and asbestos handling. Ensuring reliability and maintenance objectives, Stork supported the reduction of downtime, overdue maintenance and risk for the client with our integrated range of services and the use of multi-disciplined teams.


Stork is specialized in providing multi-disciplined teams. Combined with a breadth of in-house capabilities and fully integrated service offering, Stork delivered increased flexibility and productivity throughout the contract, by adapting the service offering to provide a truly multi-discipline approach for all services. Traditionally, teams included three scaffolders, three painters, two riggers and two RAT. However, Stork’s multi-disciplined approach focused on cross training to reduce team size. Where a team of eight was traditionally used, Stork’s multi-disciplined teams of four not only provided a dedicated team with full site familiarization but it also resulted in cost savings for the client whilst maintaining Stork’s REACH safety approach. Stork’s approach reduced the requirement for multiple interfaces and subcontractors calling on support functions from the wider Stork organization and allowed more scopes to be completed reducing the maintenance backlog.


Stork’s tailored solution was adapted across all services and using integrated, multidisciplined teams, value was added throughout the workscopes by :

  • Improving safety with a defined and measurable approach
  • Increasing flexibility, productivity and accuracy
  • Increasing efficiency
  • Reducing costs
  • Reducing down-time 
  • Reducing POB
  • Improving response times
