MECHANICAL service provider EnerMech, of Aberdeen, said yesterday it had secured a contract worth about £6million to provide crane and maintenance services for oil and gas firm Apache North Sea.
The three-year deal covers all of the assets owned by Houston-based Apache in the Forties field and will result in at least six new jobs.
EnerMech already had a working relationship with Apache and expects the new contract to open up further opportunities to work with the US company on international projects.
John Morrison, EnerMech’s managing director for cranes and lifting, said: “Over the past two years we have provided the same services to the majority of Apache’s Forties assets but this latest agreement means all the core-crew crane operation and maintenance staff throughout the Forties field will be provided exclusively by EnerMech.”
The firm employs about 300 people in the supply, maintenance and engineering of cranes, lifting, pumping and hydraulic gear plus equipment rental and the provision of specialist training and personnel to the global energy industry.
