Harkand to supply Maersk Oil with subsea services in the North Sea

Maersk Oil North Sea UK has awarded Harkand with a “multi-million-pound” contract to provide subsea support services for the operator, including a commissioning support campaign for the Flyndre development in the south-eastern part of the Central Graben Basin in the North Sea.

Harkand’s Aberdeen office will oversee the mobilisation of its dive support vessels the Harkand Atlantis (pictured) and Harkand Da Vinci for the project.

The Flyndre campaign will see personnel carrying out choke valve replacement work and delivering umbilical tie-in operations, Harkand said.

“We have a well-established relationship with Maersk Oil having delivered successful diving scopes for the company last year including decommissioning work at the Leadon field and also completing their subsea inspection campaign in 2013,” David Kerr, managing director for Harkand Europe, said in a release.
