Oilfield services firm Petrofac has struck new deals to provide BP with digitally-enhanced maintenance and metering services.
An existing maintenance contract, which created work for 73 people and was managed from Aberdeen, has been extended by three years.
London-listed Petrofac will continue to lay on inspection and maintenance services on the operator’s assets offshore UK.
Twenty new roles will transfer to Petrofac as part of a new four-year metering contract, also managed from the Granite City.
This agreement includes on and offshore consulting and support services.
Under the agreement, Petrofac will continue to harness digital technology to drive improvements and increase efficiencies for BP.
The contract values were not disclosed.
Petrofac said it had digitalised all forms of campaign maintenance and inspection activity for BP – achieving significant productivity gains compared to industry standards.
Nick Shorten, managing director, Petrofac Engineering and Production Services, West, said: “We are proud to build on our long-standing relationship with BP, who have been an early adopter of our digital execution processes.
“We look forward to building on the gains made through this approach and establishing our metering services provision.”
