FTSE 100 lab firm will manage the contract from its Aberdeen base
Laboratory testing firm Intertek has secured a new £3 million contract with Maersk Oil to provide offshore chemists and onshore laboratory analysis support.
London-based Intertek – a FTSE 100 company – will manage the contact from its Aberdeen laboratory.
The three-year contract has the option for two one-year extensions.
Intertek will provide offshore chemists full-time to three of Maersk's North Sea assets, as well as laboratory support.
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.”
Scottish Enterprise chief executive Lena Wilson was appointed to the Intertek board as a non-executive director last year.
At the time of the June 2012 appointment, Scottish Enterprise chairman Crawford Gillies said although it was “unusual for leaders in the public sector to take up private sector positions”, he believed her new role would “benefit her as CEO of Scottish Enterprise”.
