Aberdeen-headquartered firm PD&MS Group has announced the award of a North Sea contract renewal with E&P firm Chrysaor.

The firm will continue to support all of the operator’s North Sea facilities, including the Lomond, Everest and Armada installations, as part of a two year deal.

PD&MS has been under contract on the three assets since 2013, then under the ownership of BG Group, then Shell from 2016 until it was purchased by Chrysaor a year ago.

PD&MS said it would “continue to deliver laser scanning, engineering, procurement and offshore construction and commissioning operations across all assets”.

Chief executive Simon Rio said: “This award demonstrates the strength and sustainability of our delivery model, which reduces the cost of EPCC services without compromising safety or quality.

“It’s also recognition of the alignment we have with our client and depth of our service offering and the efficiencies and savings this offers our clients.”

In March, PD&MS announced it had won a a multimillion-pound deal to decommission the topsides on two of Spirit Energy’s unmanned drilling platforms on the Morecambe Bay gas field, in the East Irish Sea.

Mr Rio added: “We are pleased to see our team’s hard work and commitment being recognised. Our excellent performance and the tangible continuous improvements and enhancements we have implemented has undoubtedly led to securing this award. We are proud to be part of Chrysaor’s success story.”
