Project management firm Amec has secured a deal to provide engineering, procurement and construction of modifications to TAQA’s Tern platform.
The deal, which follows Amec’s completion of front end engineering design for the project, will see them carrying out EPC work to accommodate a new subsea tie-back to the Cladhan field.
Work is due to start immediately, and will run until the end of 2014, as part of a long-term engineering framework with TAQA.
The Cladhan field, TAQA’s third in the North Sea, is expected to produce over 17,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day with first oil expected early 2015.
“I’m delighted that we have won the opportunity to demonstrate to TAQA our brownfield engineering capability and we look forward to building a successful relationship with them,” said Alan Johnstone, AMEC’s Europe brownfield managing director.
