Under the terms of the agreement, Petrofac will continue to supply personnel to the Unity Platform in the Central North Sea, the onshore Cruden Bay Terminal and other landline sites. The contract has also been reconfigured to include engineering and construction support.
This award strengthens Petrofac’s existing relationship with INEOS FPS in the UKCS, where it already provides a Maintenance Consultancy service.
Offshore personnel will continue to be deployed via Petrofac’s dedicated 24/7 Delivery Hub, through which all of its Operations and Maintenance contracts are managed. The Hub offers flexibility of shared resources across contracts, enabling fluctuating client requirements to be managed in a flexible, cost-effective way.
Nick Shorten, Managing Director for Petrofac Engineering and Production Services, West, said: “Over the past year we have been supporting INEOS FPS as they work to transform the Forties Pipeline System, and during this time our teams have developed a great understanding of both our client’s onshore and offshore sites.
“The enhancement of this contract demonstrates our client’s continued confidence in our ability to maintain safe operations while delivering improvements to production efficiency. We very much look forward to continue working with INEOS to unlock further value.”
