Worley says a contract it won on Ithaca Energy’s Captain EOR project in the central North Sea would create work for more than 60 onshore employees.
The Australian energy service firm will provide engineering and procurement services for Ithaca as part of a two-year deal, extending its topsides design work.
Worley’s Aberdeen office will fulfil the contract, supported by its team in Hyderabad, India.
Worley completed the FEED for phase two of the Captain project last year.
Ithaca sanctioned phase two of the enhanced oil recovery project at Captain, 90 miles north-east of Aberdeen, in March.
The £400 million polymer injection scheme will involve new wells, pipelines and platform modifications.
Daniel McAteer, vice president, Aberdeen operations said: “Worley’s brownfield experience and commitment to finding sustainable solutions for our customers, further strengthens our existing relationship with Ithaca Energy.
“The North Sea is a mature and aging basin and doesn’t come without its challenges.
“We are particularly excited to be involved in the Captain EOR project.
“This gives us the opportunity to collaborate and face these challenges head on.”
