iSURVEY Strengthens North Sea Presence
iSURVEY Group, a leading provider of survey and positioning services to the global oil and gas and telecommunications sectors, has boosted its North Sea presence following a number of contract wins and the appointment of a new business development manager.
Following the recent announcement of a contract extension with Nexans Norway AS, iSURVEY has also been awarded a second contract extension with AGR to provide rig move and positioning services for the company and its clients, Faroe and Engie, during their exploration-drilling campaigns in 2016.
The semisubmersible rig, Transocean Arctic, will be used for the drilling campaigns on these two wells. iSURVEY has provided rig positioning services on board the Transocean Arctic since 2012, working with AGR during the same timeframe.
Øivind Røegh, group CEO at iSURVEY said: “With the current challenges faced in the offshore industry, iSURVEY continues to build strong, successful relationships with clients in order to further expand our operations. Securing these contracts with such highly regarded companies in the North Sea is testament to the high quality of service iSURVEY provides, and we are delighted that our solutions are being recognised across the industry.”
To continue this North Sea growth is the appointment of business development manager, Stuart Murray. Over his career spanning more than ten years, Mr Murray has undertaken a variety of business development roles within the industry. Mr Murray joins iSURVEY from Bibby Offshore where he held the position of subsea business manager, prior to this managing business development for Subsea7.
Andrew McMurtrie, managing director at iSURVEY said: “With an impressive track record in business development, Stuart brings a wealth of invaluable industry experience to iSURVEY. I have no doubt that he will be an asset to our team, supporting our growth plans which remain ambitious during the current industry environment. “
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Murray said: “I am delighted to join iSURVEY and become part of a company which has such a successful international track record. My previous business development experience will be a valuable asset to the team, allowing me to identify new opportunities for iSURVEY to continue expanding its business.”
