AMEC has been appointed by BG Group to provide engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and project management for all of the BG Group facilities in the central North Sea, including Armada, North Everest and Lomond platforms.
This latest three-year contract has a value of approximately US $223 million (£140 million). The award follows AMEC’s existing contract with BG Group for the support of their Armada asset, and effectively triples the size of the services supplied.
A number of projects come under the new contract, which includes the implementation of subsea tie backs from the Gaupe and North West Seymour wells to the Armada platform hub and a new subsea tie back to the North Everest platform hub.
It also includes a feasibility study for the continued development of the Armada platform as a processing hub.
To increase offshore capacity BG Group has invested in new Additional Living Quarters (ALQs) on the North Everest platform. Installation of this new ALQ will start in January 2011.
John Pearson, Managing Director of AMEC’s Europe and West Africa business said: “I am proud of our proven performance, safety record and drive for continuous improvement, all of which I am sure have helped us secure this award. We look forward to another three years of excellent delivery for BG Group and for the North Sea.”
Alan Johnstone, Operations Director for AMEC added: “Recently, our BG Group contract team celebrated their latest achievement of reaching over four million man-hours without a Lost Time Incident (LTI). This new award is testament to their excellent performance and to the trust BG Group has placed in us to deliver for the future.”
