Fast-growing global energy services company Senergy has marked a business first after being awarded a framework agreement to provide geotechnical representatives on behalf of a client and its site investigation work.
The agreement, which has been secured through Senergy’s survey and geo-engineering division, is with Statoil ASA for its projects in the Norwegian Continental Shelf. It will involve the supply of Senergy geotechnical personnel acting as a client representative for site investigations to underpin Statoil procedures, ensuring technical and HSE assurance.
Phil Edwards, head of survey and geo-engineering at Senergy, said: “The agreement with Statoil represents a significant development for the division as we seek to internationalise the business. This is the first survey and geo-engineering contract successfully negotiated through our Norwegian entity, although we have operated off Norway successfully over a number of years. We are extremely pleased to be working with Statoil. “
Senergy, which in July was ranked as number 10 in a league table of the UK’s fastest growing international businesses, provides fully-integrated project and asset development services across the energy sector.
Its survey and geo-engineering capabilities, which serve both the oil and gas industry and alternative energy market, span: geophysics and geohazard assessment; geotechnical and foundation engineering studies; survey, positioning and inspection; data management and geographic information system (GIS) solutions; cable burial and trenching assessment; due diligence and expert witness; and environmental science.
Edwards added: “The strong growth we are experiencing across our survey and geo-engineering operations is indicative of the increasing market demand for our specialist, integrated services. As a result, we are experiencing considerable business expansion which has led to a substantial increase in resources and capabilities for clients.”
