Marex Marine and Risk Consultancy (MAREX) is the trading name of MAREX Marine Services Limited. MAREX was formed in 1998, in response to a requirement for safety case authorship, which was introduced under the Cullen Report, following the Piper Alpha platform disaster. MAREX now comprises a safety and risk department and a marine department. From its harbour side offices in Aberdeen, it coordinates a network and staff of marine, risk and survey professionals undertaking projects worldwide for the offshore oil and gas market. In addition to master mariners, safety and marine engineers and naval architects, it draws on the skills of mathematicians, risk specialists and fishing industry experts.

The departments carry out work for oil majors, including safety cases, ship vetting, auditing, incident investigation, safety managements systems, bow tie risk assessment, practical risk assessment workshops for managements and crews and the planning and execution of rig moves as well as undertaking technical authorships and general marine consultancy. The worldwide market has opened up to MAREX as more coastal states now have a requirement for drilling companies to have safety cases. This is coupled with the fact that the oil majors are requesting drilling companies to have safety cases for their units even if there is no coastal state legislative requirement.

MAREX pledges to the following Commitment:

“We endeavour to provide the highest quality solutions to our clients within the Offshore Industry in order to enable them to operate more efficiently and safely. MAREX aims to deliver a quality service and professional support in accordance with legislative requirements and industry standards, within the timeframe agreed at extremely competitive rates. Our ‘track record‘ in ‘quality service provision‘ is excellent. Client satisfaction and long term client relationships bear testimony to this.“
