MARINE-SAFETY specialist Survival Craft Inspectorate (SCI) has won a multimillion-pound deal to supply and service life-saving equipment for Shell’s operations in the southern North Sea.
The three-year contract is believed to be worth more than £2.5million.
It follows a successful tender to AJS – the joint-venture set up by Amec, Jacobs Engineering and Stork Industry Services to deliver integrated services for Shell Onegas, a combined business unit of Shell UK Exploration and Production and Dutch oil and gas company Nam.
AJS carries out maintenance, modification and capital projects work for Onegas production installations, including 51 offshore assets and two gas plants: at Bacton, in Norfolk, and Den Helder, in the Netherlands.
SCI already held a contract to provide services for Shell in the northern North Sea.
It will deliver services for the southern sector from new premises at Great Yarmouth.
The company has already invested £750,000 in staffing and equipping the site, which opened in January.
SCI – which employs 60 engineers at its Findon Shore, Aberdeenshire, headquarters – inspects, tests and services lifeboats and associated equipment. It has operations in the UK, Norway, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, China, and America.
