Well-Centric seals £8m North Sea contract

Well-Centric is confident of further growth despite the industry downturn after securing an £8m North Sea contract.

The Aberdeen firm has secured a contract to provide offshore and onshore maintenance and repair services to Apache Corporation’s North Sea subsidiaries.

The three-year deal will see the firm provide offshore wellhead maintenance services, as well as workshop-based wellhead repair and refurbishment for Apache’s UK assets.

Chief executive officer, Chris Mawtus, said: “We have remained totally focused on providing operators with the essential integrity services they need to keep their wells working, efficiently and for longer.

“Across the North Sea, and further afield, it’s more important than ever that operators maintain, repair and care for their assets in a cost-effective manner – and they need a service partner they can trust to deliver exactly what they need, to the timescales they demand.

“From scheduled day-to-day maintenance and inspections, to management and certification of ageing assets, through to specialist repairs and creatively engineered solutions, Well-Centric brings our customers total wellhead servicing.”

Mawtus said Well-Centric was remaining confident through the tough market conditions, continuing to invest in recruiting talent, improving facilities and developing new technologies to meet the specific well integrity challenges of its customers.
