Nature Group, a leading oil, gas and maritime waste collection and treatment company, has secured a five-year contract with Maersk Oil in the Central North Sea.
The contract will see the company mobilise offshore slop processing environmental units and operational staff to drilling rigs on contract to Maersk Oil. The work has created 10 jobs for Nature Group, both on- and offshore.
The Group's offshore slops treatment units combine a small footprint with a high treatment capacity, without the use of filtration membranes. Thanks to continued innovation and investment in research and development, Nature Group helps customers to minimise logistics and transport costs, demonstrate an environmentally conscious approach and in turn, reduce risks and liabilities.
Allan Mitchell, general manager UK at Nature Group said: “We are delighted that Maersk Oil has awarded Nature Group this significant contract, our first project in the UK sector of the North Sea. This is a reflection of the strong track record we have built in other regions and sectors, and Maersk Oil's confidence in our experience and technology is highly encouraging.
“We are also particularly pleased that this long-term project has allowed us to create a number of jobs within the oil and gas industry, which is a very positive story. We have exciting growth plans in the UK, and having the right people in our team to fulfil these ambitions is critical. Securing this contract is a major milestone in Nature Group's journey and we are confident this work will act as a springboard for further opportunities in the UKCS and beyond.”
Founded in 1999, Nature Group is headquartered in Amsterdam and has bases in Aberdeen, Rotterdam, Stavanger, Houston, Abu Dhabi and Rio de Janeiro. The company, which employs 70 people, offers environmental waste management services to both the oil and gas and maritime sectors.
