Cosalt Offshore is to provide inspection services to Shell at two UK onshore gas processing plants.
The three-year contract will involve Cosalt Offshore carrying out inspection and test activities on the sites at St Fergus and Mossmoran to ensure the ongoing legislative compliance of lifting equipment.
St Fergus, 40 miles north of Aberdeen, processes gas arriving by several pipelines from fields in the North Sea, which is then transported by pipeline to Mossmorran in Fife for further processing and then re-delivery to shippers as finished products.
The work is the latest in a line of deals won by Cosalt Offshore in the last 12 months, including contracts with clients Acergy, PSN, Chevron and Subsea 7.
Cosalt Offshore Chief Executive Officer Rod Buchan said: "Shell is an extremely important client to Cosalt Offshore and we believe building strong relationships and providing an excellent service has helped us to win record levels of work for this year.
"Safety and a high-quality approach are integral to all our activities on and offshore and we continue to invest in ensuring we have the best equipment and team of engineers in the industry.''
Cosalt Offshore has nearly 300 personnel, including a team of multi-skilled engineers, based in Aberdeen and its operations at Stavanger.
