BIRKENHEAD, UK – Statoil has commissioned Survitec to provide leased lifejackets and immersion suits for offshore personnel on the Mariner oil field development in the UK’s East Shetland basin.
Up to 1,500 people will perform hookup and commissioning work at the field center in the run-up to first oil in the second half of 2018.
Mariner is set to produce for 30 years and will create 700 permanent jobs.
Survitec will kit operatives in 1000 Series passenger suits and MK50 lifejackets. The suits are said to feature a lightweight design for optimum fit – the company will in addition provide integrated air supply systems and survival items such as a light and whistle.
