Stork secures major contract win with Statoil

Stork, the global provider of knowledge-based asset integrity management services for the oil and gas, chemical and power sectors, has secured a significant contract win with Norwegian oil and gas operator, Statoil (U.K) Limited (Statoil). 

The five year contract, with a 2+2 year extension options, is estimated to be valued at £25million and will see Stork deliver a range of integrated fabric maintenance services throughout Statoil’s Mariner field including: scaffolding solutions, painting and blasting, passive fire protection, rigging and lifting technical assistance, rope access and insulation services. 

The Mariner platform is currently under construction and production is scheduled to start in 2017.  The Mariner project entails investments of more than  £4.5 billion.  The field is expected to produce for at least 30 years.  The average production is estimated at around 55,000 barrels of oil per day over the period.  The development plan includes a production, drilling and quarters (PDQ) platform based on a steel jacket, with a floating storage unit (FSU).
