EnergyPathways said it has already engaged MCS and Mermaid for initial work orders, which will inform the scope of the final contract.

The development plan for the Marram Project includes the use of diverless connection systems in shallow water, which is expected to reduce the risks associated with diver-based pipeline tie-in operations.

Mermaid Subsea Services UK regional director Scott Cormack said: “Delivering on the UK Government’s strategy of Maximising Economic Recovery of offshore oil and gas reserves, while also ensuring an orderly transition to net zero, is core to Mermaid’s business, and this MOU is further evidence of that.

“Marram is a low-emission, high-reward field, and we look forward to working with EnergyPathways and MCS to make this project a reality.”
