AMEC has been appointed by BP (NYSE:BP) to carry out the engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) of capital investment projects for existing facilities at its UK oil storage terminals in 2011.
The EPCm contract, the value of which has not been disclosed, covers all of BP Oil’s mainland UK and Northern Ireland storage terminals, and is in addition to AMEC’s recent onshore and offshore global agreements with BP.
The 2011 contract, which has the option of two one-year extensions, will see AMEC provide engineering and project management expertise, feasibility studies, front-end engineering design (FEED), detailed design and installation work on process plant and equipment at the Belfast, Hamble, Hemel Hempstead, Isle of Grain, Kingsbury, Northampton and Walton-on-Thames terminals.
Working across all of the seven storage terminals will ensure that AMEC applies technical and managerial consistency and best-in-class health, safety and environmental standards across all the assets.
“BP is one of our key long-standing customers, so I’m delighted to see our already formidable portfolio of work for them extended by this excellent contract,” said John Pearson, Managing Director of AMEC’s Europe & West Africa business. “I am also proud to see that our experience and capabilities are again helping to maintain the UK’s energy supply.”
