Seacroft Marine Consultants win £2m Apache contract

Aberdeen-based specialist marine consultancy Seacroft Marine Consultants has secured a contract worth up to £2m with a major North Sea oil and gas operator.

The five term deal with Apache, including two additional one year options, is for the provision of marine technical and quality assurance services, which includes all vessel types.

This latest win for Seacroft Marine Consultants follows a number of high profile contract wins awarded with Chevron, BP and Centrica E & P for supplying marine assurance services.

Launched in 1995 by Captain Roderick MacSween, Seacroft has been owned and operated by the founder’s daughter Jennifer Fraser and technical director Michael Cowlam since 2004.

With a team of 14 staff and more than 70 consultants, the company has built its reputation in the marine assurance and consultancy sphere.

Jennifer Fraser, director at Seacroft, said: "We are delighted to have won this contract with Apache, which is testament to the professionalism of our team.  We are proud of the relationships that our company has built up with a wide variety of clients both in the North Sea and around the world, which reflects the cost effective services and savings we can provide to our clients.

"Seacroft has been working hard to build on the momentum gained by recent contract wins and are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead of us. During what continues to be a difficult time in the oil and gas industry we are proud to be winning new contracts and we look forward to continuing our work with Apache."

Michael Cowlam, director at Seacroft, added: "It has been a great year for us with a large number of contract wins across a wide range of areas. We have a fantastic team with a broad range of skills and knowledge, which stands us in great stead and gives us the scope to grow and adapt according to client requirements."
