Offshore engineering firm Amec Foster Wheeler has announced that it has been awarded a contract extension by Centrica for its Morecambe Bay onshore and offshore gas production assets. The engineering, construction and project support (ECAPS) contract includes work for operations and maintenance, minor modifications and projects.

The original contract awarded to Amec Foster Wheeler in 2011 is now extended for a further three years to the end of 2019. Total value of the contract extension is EUR60m ($64m).

“I’m delighted that the team’s application of our ‘More 4 Less’ culture, systems and processes has resulted in this contract extension from Centrica. We are justifiably proud of our safe and efficient delivery across both on and offshore assets,” said Jim Lenton, Amec Foster Wheeler’s President, Asset Support.

UK oil services provider Wood Group is set to take over Amec Foster Wheeler after an agreement was reached this week between the two companies in a deal worth about $2.71bn. The deal is expected to be completed during the second half of 2017.
