PD&MS secures jobs with Shell North Sea extension deal

Aberdeen-headquartered PD&MS has announced a contract extension with Shell that will secure jobs on a number of North Sea assets.

The two-year agreement will see the engineering firm continue its existing three-year business relationship and safeguard 50 full-time jobs.

PD&MS technical director Derek Thoms said in December the firm would increase its headcount by around 25% over the next year to support a series of recent contract wins.

He revealed the announcement of new deals would mean up to 100 new jobs.

The firm has enjoyed two years in decommissioning as well as engineering, procurement and construction contracts.

PD&MS, which employs around 400 people in Aberdeen and internationally, said it also expects strong growth opportunities in the New Year.

Commenting on the Shell deal, Liam O’Neil, PD&MS’ director of projects said: “It’s fantastic that Shell has awarded us this extension, and we now have an opportunity to raise the bar even further in our EPCC space.

“Using the PD&MS delivery model, we pride ourselves on challenging the norm, working smarter and attacking problems from different angles. By doing so, we aim to provide long term value to Shell UK, and our wider customer base, through continuous innovation and improvement.

“Our aim is to continue working with Shell UK to develop innovative and value-adding solutions to common problems, which has been a key USP of PD&MS since inception in 2002.

“This contract extension is superb recognition of our commitment to continuous improvement, which in turn strengthens our market position and supports our efforts to fulfil our business growth strategy.”

PD&MS has operations across the UK, Dutch and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea, as well as work for BP in the Caspian Sea, served by an office in Baku, Azerbaijan.

In October, PD&MS secured a contract renewal to support  Chrysaor’s Lomond, Everest and Armada platforms over two-years.

That followed a hat-trick of new deals worth £10m at the start of the year, including a multimillion-pound deal with Spirit Energy to decommission the topsides of two unmanned platforms on the Morecambe Bay gas field in the East Irish Sea.
