iSURVEY Offshore has secured a framework contract with Total E&P UK Limited for the provision of rig navigation and positioning services.

The three year contract will give the iSURVEY team the opportunity to provide platform, rig and vessel-based positioning services to Total’s offshore operations in the North Sea. 

Currently, Total has multiple drilling rigs on hire, all of which have the potential to require positioning during moving operations.

Andrew McMurtrie, Managing Director, iSURVEY, said: “Having launched our Aberdeenshire base in 2014, the past year has seen iSURVEY’s UK side of operations grow in a very short space of time, and we look forward to continuing the expansion of our services and working closely with Total over the coming years.”
