SPD Limited – part of the Petrofac Group –  has secured a contract from Zennor Petroleum to provide well design and well construction management services to support the Finlaggan appraisal well in the central North Sea.

The contract – awarded as a result of competitive tender – commenced last month. Petrofac’s highly experienced well management team is responsible for executing the planning and operational phases and will manage the end-to-end process within a six month schedule.

This will involve detailed design and planning, procurement, subcontractor management and the execution of the appraisal well operations.

Alex MacDonald, Managing Director, SPD, Petrofac Engineering & Production Services, said: “We’re delighted to begin the year with a key contract to support an existing customer.

“This is our third well project management award from Zennor Petroleum in the North Sea and it cements our existing relationship with them, building on our established portfolio of well project management and engineering services delivery.”

Established in 2002, SPD is part of Petrofac’s Engineering & Production Services business and has amassed a wealth of experience in planning and managing well operations worldwide. It has operational centres in Aberdeen, Sharjah, Kuala Lumpur and New Zealand and has drilled more than 180 wells worldwide.
