iSurvey scores extension for Transocean Arctic rig positioning

Norwegian survey and positioning services company iSurvey has won a second contract extension with AGR to provide rig move and positioning services for the company and its clients, Faroe Petroleum and Engie during their exploration-drilling campaigns in 2016.

The semi-submersible rig Transocean Arctic will be used for the drilling campaigns on these two wells to be drilled by the two oil firms. iSURVEY has provided rig positioning services on board the Transocean Arctic since 2012, working with AGR during the same timeframe.

Øivind Røegh, group CEO at iSURVEY said: “With the current challenges faced in the offshore industry, iSURVEY continues to build strong, successful relationships with clients in order to further expand our operations. Securing these contracts with such highly regarded companies in the North Sea is testament to the high quality of service iSURVEY provides, and we are delighted that our solutions are being recognised across the industry.”

The company has also informed of the appointment of a new business development manager, Stuart Murray. Murray has undertaken a variety of business development roles within the industry in his career. Murray joins iSURVEY from Bibby Offshore where he held the position of subsea business manager, prior to this managing business development for Subsea7.

Andrew McMurtrie, managing director at iSURVEY said: “With an impressive track record in business development, Stuart brings a wealth of invaluable industry experience to iSURVEY. I have no doubt that he will be an asset to our team, supporting our growth plans which remain ambitious during the current industry environment.”
