AMEC, an engineering and project management company, has won a four year contract worth £60 million (€68 million) to help build BP’s onshore and offshore oil projects in the North Sea.
The project is an ‘evergreen project’ and will be located to the west of Shetland, Northern North Sea, Southern North Sea and the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
AMEC’s work will include front-end engineering design (FEED) and all the processes leading to construction management for multiple EPC (engineering, procure, construct) projects.
‘I am extremely pleased that we are continuing to strengthen our already good relationship with BP,’ says John Pearson, managing director of AMEC’s Europe & West Africa business. ‘This major award in the North Sea demonstrates BP’s ongoing confidence in our project delivery and programme management capabilities.’
Andrew Tozer, BP’s North Sea Projects general manager adds: ‘This new contract with AMEC will enable the BP North Sea Region Projects team to work as an integrated team delivering a significant portfolio of projects in the North Sea. AMEC has a strong team and access to high-quality engineering, project and construction management resources, which is key to the team’s project delivery objectives. We look forward to building our relationship with AMEC, and to the delivery of safe and compliant projects over the mid to long term.’
