Petrofac has won the right to extend its time as duty-holder of the EnQuest-operated Kittiwake platform in the North Sea.
The one-year deal builds on the firm’s 18-year tenure on the installation, 100miles east of Aberdeen.
Under the deal, Petrofac will continue in its role as duty holder, a position it has held since 2014, and as the asset’s previous owners since 2003.
Nick Shorten, chief operating officer of Petrofac’s Engineering and Production Services business, hailed the deal.
He said: “The renewal of this key contract is testament to the strength of our relationship with EnQuest and our deep understanding of the Kittiwake platform.
“In October last year our asset teams marked 15-years without a lost time incident – a significant milestone which demonstrates the collaborative nature of our agreement and our collective commitment to safe and successful energy production.
“Over the term of our 18-year role on Kittiwake, we have managed a wide range of operational work scopes and brownfield projects enabling operational efficiencies and production improvement. We look forward to building on these efforts over the coming year through the successful completion of a number of planned subsea campaigns, which will maximise production volumes and further enhance our 2021 operational performance, including energy efficiency and emissions reductions.”
