Cosalt Offshore, a provider of lifting, tooling and marine services to the oil and gas industry, has concluded agreements with Acergy to provide all lifting services it requires in the UK and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea.
The two contracts are worth up to a total of £3million in the UK and Norway at present and there is scope for an increase in the workload over the coming months. The deals involve Cosalt Offshore providing a total management service in addition to products to fulfill all of Acergy’s subsea lifting equipment requirements.
The work is the latest in a line of major deals won by Cosalt Offshore in the last year, including long-term contracts with clients PSN and Chevron covering lifting work in the North Sea. News of the contract success follows the recent announcement that Rod Buchan is joining Cosalt Offshore as Chief Executive Officer in February.
Cosalt Offshore has nearly 300 personnel, including a team of multi-skilled engineers, based in Aberdeen and its operations at Stavanger.
The subsea lifting service includes full project management from the storing of equipment such as mechanical handling gear and shackles, then full stripdown and preparation for use as required, right through to providing experienced vessel inspection engineers, advice and assistance in compliance matters globally. An experienced team led by an account manager is held on standby dedicated to the specific client to accommodate any request anywhere in the world.
Cosalt Offshore Commercial Director Lisa Mitchell said: “Cosalt Offshore has an established track-record of offering a cost-effective service in which quality safety is paramount. The success of our approach has been proven time and time again through retaining existing clients and starting to work with new ones.
“Building strong relationships with our customers and meeting and frequently exceeding their expectations is at the core of the company, along with high levels of investment in ensuring we have the best equipment and team of engineers in the industry.”
