The contract marks the first piece of work Harkand has undertaken for the operator.

The inspection scope covers the Buzzard, Scott, Telford, Ettrick and Rochelle assets in the central North Sea and includes infield pipelines and structures, export lines as well as some platform inspection.

It will see the deployment of the Surf Ranger, which joined the Harkand fleet in May. The multi-purpose ROV, survey and air diving vessel will be equipped with high definition cameras, one work-class and two observation-class ROVs.

David Kerr, managing director of Harkand in Europe, said: “Harkand is continuing to grow rapidly both in size and capability and we welcome our new partnership with Nexen.”

Harkand is focused on attaining the highest standards in health, safety, quality and environmental performance and delivering first-class project execution.

The Group was launched in February 2013 through the merger of Iremis, Integrated Subsea Services (ISS) and Andrews Survey following investment by Oaktree Capital Management. Employing close to 1,000 people at bases in Aberdeen, London, Houston, Singapore and Perth in Australia, Harkand aims to grow turnover to $1 billion in the next four years.

The 85.4m Surf Ranger is a DP2 multi-purpose ROV, survey and air diving vessel featuring a helideck, 60t TTS Energy AS active heave compensated knuckle boom crane and can accommodate 69 personnel on board. It is permanently equipped with a Triton XLS work class ROV.
