AMEC has been awarded a FEED contract for GDF SUEZ E&P UK Ltd's Cygnus gas field development, one of the most significant undeveloped gas fields in the North Sea.
The contract includes work on the 'option to proceed' into the detailed design and procurement phase, and is valued at an estimated £ 50 million. The FEED, which starts immediately, is scheduled for completion in 2012. The contract will create about 150 new jobs at peak.
Jean-Claude Perdigues, managing director at GDF SUEZ E&P UK said, "The FEED contract award represents a major milestone for the Cygnus development and underlines our strong commitment to the UK Continental Shelf. I look forward to working closely with AMEC as we progress the field development project towards final investment decision in 2012."
