Craig International has signed a five-year procurement contract for all Premier Oil’s maintenance and repair operations in the UK North Sea.
The contract, which could be worth up to £5 million, will see Craig International’s UK office work alongside its global network on all aspects of the procurement process – from sourcing to logistics – to ensure the most cost-effective service possible.
Craig International won the competitive retender due to the company’s range of innovative e-commerce ideas and driven efficiencies which provide added value to the client.
Steve McHardy, joint managing director of Craig International, said:
“We’ve built a strong relationship with Premier Oil and securing this contract recognises the value outsourced procurement can bring to a project. Our approach gives clients a variety of options to meet their requirements and suit their budgets.”
Craig International is a division of privately-owned shipping and energy services firm, Craig Group.
