Intertek secures £3 million contract

Monday, Jan 14, 2013

Intertek, the global provider of quality and safety services, has secured work with Maersk Oil UK worth £3 million to provide offshore chemists and onshore laboratory analysis support.

The three year contract has the option for two one year extensions and will see Intertek provide offshore chemists full time for three of the operator’s assets, as well as a supporting team in the laboratory.

Intertek will perform a variety of services for Maersk Oil UK from sample gathering and testing to monitoring process systems and chemical injection to support Maersk Oil UK North Sea operations.

Raymond Pirie, vice president of Intertek’s global upstream business, said: “We are pleased to have secured the contract with Maersk Oil UK and look forward to supporting the company in its operations. Our provision of field services is complemented by in-house scientists who have access to advanced instrumentation to respond to complex analytical challenges. Intertek’s laboratory supports the oil and gas value chain across its entirety, from reservoir to refinery.”

Intertek has provided services to the oil and gas sector for more than 40 years from Aberdeen and has invested around £4.5 million in state-of-the art laboratories in its energy services hub.

The First Minister of Scotland recently officially opened the Aberdeen headquarters of Intertek’s energy services operation, which is the base for its exploration and production support. It brings together a wide scope of expertise including: production and integrity assurance; hydrocarbon allocation; chemometric modelling; calibration and metering, consulting and training, dimensional control and environmental consultancy. More than 160 people are based in this building, and this could increase to up to 220 over the next three years.
