Amec Foster Wheeler has won three contracts, totalling more than £30million, for BP’s Glen Lyon Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.
The deal will create 150 jobs – 100 onshore and 50 offshore.
The FPSO vessel is part of the Quad 204 Project, which is located 175 km west of the Shetland Isles.
The hook up and commissioning contract is worth £27million.
The two year deal includes the hook up of the new Glen Lyon FPSO to the Schiehallion and Loyal fields – a move that will enable the fields to continue production beyond 2035.
The second contract, worth £2million, includes the provision of electrical and instrument technicians as part of the commissioning support to the Glen Lyon hook up.
Finally, Amec will provide follow-on engineering as part of a contract for any residual works that emerges during the transition from the yard in Korea to BP operations.
Together the deals total £31.5million.
Alan Johnstone, Amec Foster Wheeler’s managing director for Upstream Asset Solutions, said: “We are delighted to work with BP on their Quad 204 redevelopment, which extends field life and contributes to the future sustainability of the Schiehallion and Loyal fields.
“The three contracts allow Amec Foster Wheeler to demonstrate its leading hook up and commissioning capabilities, whilst ensuring a focus on safe and efficient operations.”
Amec Foster Wheeler has been providing hook up and commissioning services to BP’s two new Clair Ridge platforms since 2013.
Last week, BP confirmed the FPSO, which is 270metres long and 52metres wide, had started its maiden voyage.
It’s expected to be one of the largest FPSOs in the North Sea upon its arrival.
