The offshore catering and facilities contract was awarded to Aberdeen-based ESS Offshore and includes the provision of offshore catering services to the Mariner A platform and Mariner B floating storage unit, as well as housekeeping services, helideck operations and emergency response duties. The agreement is due to start in 2016.

The onshore total facilities management contract was awarded to 14forty, previously known as Eurest, and covers Statoil’s offices in Aberdeen, London and its Dudgeon wind farm operations base in Great Yarmouth.

The provision of catering, cleaning, security and property services will start immediately in Great Yarmouth and in 2016 in the London office and Aberdeen, with the opening of Statoil’s new UKCS operations centre.

“Combining the offshore and onshore scopes has created significant synergies and efficiencies for Statoil in the UK. We appreciate the innovative and cost-effective solutions presented by ESS Offshore and 14forty. This type of close collaboration with our suppliers is critical to ensuring efficient operations for Mariner in the long term,” says Tove Stuhr Sjøblom, managing director for Statoil Production (UK) Ltd.

Each contract has a duration of five years with options to extend to up to four years.

Statoil is the operator of Mariner with 65.11% equity. Co-venturers are JX Nippon Exploration and Production (U.K.) Limited (28.89%) and Dyas UK Ltd. (6%).

The Mariner Field is located on the East Shetland Platform of the UK North Sea, approximately 95 miles east of the Shetland Isles.

The Mariner platform is currently under construction. Predrilling will commence in 2016, and production is scheduled to start in 2018. The development of the Mariner field will contribute more than 250 million barrels reserves with average plateau production of around 55,000 barrels per day.

Based in Aberdeen, ESS Offshore delivers market leading services to offshore locations in the UK and around the world. 14forty is one of the world's leading food and support services businesses, offering integrated facilities management.
