Odfjell Drilling Wins Mariner Contract

The UK's Odfjell Drilling has been awarded a $245-million contract to provide drilling services on the Mariner platform, Statoil announced Wednesday.

Aberdeen-based Odfjell will perform drilling services, maintenance of the drilling facility and drill pipe logistics for the Mariner field development, with options also on the Bressay field development, Statoil said. The contract duration is four years from November 2016 and will include three two-year options.

The Mariner platform is currently under construction. Odfjell Drilling will provide engineering and commissioning services to Statoil under the construction and start-up phase of the field development.

Morten Ruud, vice president Western Europe for Statoil Development and Production International, commented in a statement: 

"Mariner is the largest new offshore development in the UK in more than a decade. Over its lifetime the project will generate jobs and substantial ripple effects for UK and the Aberdeen region. This contract award is an example of that."
