OSM Offshore to operate Mariner FSU

OSM Offshore Aberdeen Limited, a subsidiary of OSM Offshore AS and a member of OSM Maritime Group, has on January 9, 2015 agreed to enter into a long-term contract with energy company Statoil UK Limited to operate the Mariner Floating Storage Unit (FSU).

The Mariner oil field lies within part-block 9/11a of the United Kingdom Continental Shelf.

The contract with Statoil includes building supervision in Korea, pre-operation activities, transit from Korea to site, and full management services on site. The contract, which starts on February 1, is a long-term contract with a fixed duration of five years with further option periods of three x two years.

OSM says it considers this contract to be a great win after a competitive bid in Statoil’s tender process in the UK, demonstrating the company’s experience, competence and quality.

OSM was also awarded the contract for Mariner’s sister vessel Heidrun FSU in October 2013.

“Being awarded this new contract is a geat recognition of our competence,” says Managing Director, Eivind Nordal. OSM says it has also been responsible for the drawing review projects for both units.

“OSM considers the UK offshore market to be attractive, and will keep investing in the UK and Aberdeen area.”

“This contract allows us to leverage on the vast offshore expertise this area has to offer. It is important for us to utilize the experience and competence that we can find locally, and combine this with the OSM know-how,” explains Nordal. 

“We have already attained a broad experience with FSU units, having operated many years with several units in this segment. Statoil is one of the world’s leading oil and energy companies and I am delighted that they have recognized OSM’s capabilities and expertise in FSU operations. I look forward to long co-operation with Statoil set on UK soil,” says Nordal.
