- Business & Finance
Maersk Supply Service has been selected to deliver an integrated FPSO mooring installation and replacement solution for an unnamed American oil major in the Gulf of Guinea.
Maersk Supply Service will provide the full work scope from project management to execution, the company said on Thursday.
Responsibilities undertaken as part of the project include engineering, procurement, transportation of mooring equipment, safety management and offshore execution using four of Maersk Supply Service’s large anchor handling vessels as well as ROV and survey services.
Maersk Supply Service has partnered with InterMoor, who will support the project with its expertise within engineering, design and offshore execution of mooring system operations.
CEO Steen S. Karstensen said: “With this major contract, we add both a new customer and a new country to our track record of providing integrated solutions. While we have supported this customer with marine services in the past, we are pleased that they recognize our expanded capabilities and have shown their trust in Maersk Supply Service to deliver on this complex scope of work. As the project lead of this FPSO mooring installation, we look forward to further strengthening our position in the market as a preferred solutions provider.”
The project will be led from Maersk Supply Service’s office in Aberdeen, with an integrated project team supporting from Houston. The planning and engineering work starts immediately, with offshore execution expected to take place during 4Q 2019.
Head of Integrated Solutions, Olivier Trouvé, said: “Our goal is to take a collaborative approach that reduces risk and minimizes interfaces for our customers. Africa is a key region for Maersk Supply Service’s integrated solutions offerings and we look forward to demonstrating how our versatile assets, marine expertise, project management and engineering capabilities delivers exactly this.”
