Petrofac gets contract extensions on UK Continental Shelf

Two clients have extended their existing contracts in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) with oil and gas infrastructure firm Petrofac, which has secured contract renewals worth a combined $400m since the year began.

Centrica Storage Limited has extended its services contract by a further two years, starting in January 2016, on the 8A platform in the Rough field, off the east coast of England. The platform is linked by subsea pipeline to an onshore gas processing terminal at Easington, around 27 miles south-east of Hull.

EnQuest has exercised a five-year extension of its existing facilities management agreement. Petrofac will continue as duty holder of the Kittiwake platform, 160km east of Aberdeen in Scotland, with a brownfield engineering modifications contract. Oil is exported from the platform via a 33-km-long pipeline to the BP-operated Forties Unity platform.

“We’ve enjoyed productive and long-standing relationships with our customers in the UKCS and these contracts are a great demonstration of how we can continue to work in partnership to efficiently deliver in line with their individual business and operational needs and our own standards,” Walter Thain, managing director of Petrofac Offshore Projects & Operations, said in a statement.
