Petrofac is set to build on its provision of integrated support services on the Cygnus gas field following the award of a four and a half-year contract extension.
The extension to December 2021 is worth in the region of $70 million and includes the provision of enhanced construction services and production supervision, as well as the existing pre-operations, operations, maintenance, engineering and commissioning scope.
Petrofac began working on the pre-operational phase of Cygnus – the largest gas field discovery in the southern North Sea for 30 years – in 2011.
Walter Thain, Managing Director, Petrofac Engineering and Production Services, West, said: “This extension reflects our ability to provide effective integrated support services that make a difference to the safety and effectiveness of our client’s operations.
“We look forward to building on our involvement in this project as we work towards completion of the commissioning phases and into operations.”
Meanwhile, subsea services provider Bibby has won a major contract with Shell, which is due to start in 1Q2017 in the Gannet-G field in the central North Sea.
Bibby Offshore will deploy its dive support and offshore construction vessel Bibby Polaris – and its integral 1000 tonne basket carousel – to lay flexible pipe systems in water depths of approximately 100 yards.
The company has also collaborated with a third -operator who will carry out trenching operations after the initial workscope is completed.
