Petrofac lands $400m UKCS contracts

Oil and gas services provider Petrofac has secured contract extensions from its customers on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) worth approximately US$400m.

This includes a two year extension from Centrica Storage Ltd to its Services contract on the 8A platform in the Rough field which will begin in January.

Petrofac has also secured a five-year contract extension with EnQuest which will see it continue as duty holder of the Kittiwake platform, with a brownfield engineering modifications contract.

Walter Thain, managing director of Petrofac Offshore Projects & Operations, said: “We’ve enjoyed productive and long-standing relationships with our customers in the UKCS and these contracts are a great demonstration of how we can continue to work in partnership to efficiently deliver in line with their individual business and operational needs and our own standards.”

This is the second round of UKCS renewals announced by Petrofac, with the award earlier this year of a number of operations and maintenance contracts, worth US$400m, from customers including CNRI and Eni.

Petrofac has also recently achieved a major milestone on the Laggan-Tormore project with the completion of all main construction activities at the Shetland Gas Plant for Total E&P UK in preparation for the introduction of gas, which is expected before the end of the year.
