Kent has been awarded a three-year framework contract to monitor the structural integrity of Ineos’ Southern North Sea assets.
The multinational engineering firm will support the safe and sustainable management of the Breagh Alpha and Clipper South offshore platforms.
A value for the contract, which covers the full suite of structural analysis services – global strength, fatigue and detailed local analyses, wasn’t given.
Kent will assess the extreme environmental hazard and implement practical measures to manage the two installations.
Philip Walker, chief engineer and team lead for offshore structures, oil and gas and offshore wind at Kent, said: “Our offshore structural team is delighted to be awarded this framework contract. We look forward to supporting INEOS UK SNS Ltd., through use of our proprietary tools and innovative technical approach, in delivering safe and sustainable structural integrity management and structural analysis services for the Breagh Alpha and Clipper South offshore platforms.”
Kent’s Aberdeen office will lead the contract, with input from the company’s large gloval offshore structure business, network of technical experts and their industry-leading subject matter experts.
Last year Maersk Drilling secured a multi-million contract with Ineos for drilling and hydraulic stimulation at the Breagh Alpha A11 well, using the harsh-environment jack-up rig Maersk Resolve.
