UK offshore services firm Petrofac has been awarded a well plugging and abandonment contract by Hess Corporation.
The agreement is for four wells within the Rubie and Renee fields, off Aberdeen, which were previously shut-in as part of an earlier decommissioning phase. They will now be fully abandoned.
Petrofac will be responsible for planning, procurement and management of all sub-contracted services, including the provision of a semi-submersible rig.
Nick Shorten, managing director for Petrofac Engineering and Production Services West, commented: “We are delighted to secure our first well engineering scope with Hess. This award builds on our existing track record for delivering Well Operator and Project Management services for clients globally, but specifically in the UKCS where in recent years we have successfully delivered numerous multi-well plug and abandonment campaigns.”
