The contractor will support Anasuria Operating Co. (AOC), a UK joint venture between Hibiscus Petroleum and Ping Petroleum, which recently acquired the interests from former operator Shell.
Petrofac’s initial five-year contract, with extension options, is valued at around $250 million and secures 65 jobs, with most of the offshore personnel currently supporting the facilities transferring to the contractor.
The assets within the Anasuria cluster, 175 km (109 mi) east of Aberdeen, comprise the Anasuria FPSO, the Teal, Teal South and Guillemot A fields, and a 38.65% interest in the Cook field.
Petrofac will assume full responsibility on behalf of AOC for the FPSO operations and for monitoring and managing the subsea pipelines and wells with the exception of the Cook well.
This is an extension of the contractor’s normal role in the North Sea of duty holder alone, an outsourced service which Petrofac claims to have pioneered in 1997.
