Amec signals commitment to North Sea, reveals remodeling plans

Amec Foster Wheeler (AFW) today reiterated its commitment to Aberdeen and the North Sea after enjoying a busy six months for the region. AFW said it was “powering ahead” with hook up operations on a number of key North Sea development projects, including Clair Ridge and Quad 204, both of which were creating “good opportunities” for employment. The engineering and project management firm’s Scottish workforce, thought to number around 4,500 people, is largely focused in the Aberdeen area and offshore.

Amec posts losses of £450m despite busy first half in North Sea

Record North Sea revenues at Amec Foster Wheeler (AFW) were not enough to prevent first half profits from nosediving at the engineering and project management giant. London-headquartered AFW – a major oil and gas supply chain player – said today it had worked on a number of key North Sea projects during the six months, including hook-up and commissioning for Clair Ridge and Quad 204. Revenues for the Northern Europe and CIS region lifted 3% year-on-year to £759, with oil and gas contributing £570million to that figure.

EnerMech fulfilling £5m contract for work on Glen Lyon FPSO

EnerMech is working on a £5million contract to prepare the Glen Lyon FPSO for delivering first oil from BP’s Quad 204 project, the mechanical engineering group said today. Quad 204 involves redeveloping the Schiehallion and Loyal fields, 110 miles west of Shetland, with the intention squeezing another 450million barrels from them. Glen Lyon, which is 885ft long and 170ft wide, is expected to process 130,000 barrels of oil and 220 million cubic feet of gas per day when production starts.

Babcock completes milestone with delivery of structures to Quad 204

A major milestone has been reached in the delivery of 73 subsea structures for BP’s Quad 204 offshore development project. Babcock International Services has completed two manifolds – the largest and most complex constructions within the project – at its Rosyth facility on the Forth. The structures, which were manufactured, painted and outfitted at the site, were transported to Lerwick by freighter and then transferred to a dedicated heavy lift vessel for installation at the Schiehallion and Loyal oil and gas fields.

Technip’s Richard Wylie relishing challenge of mammoth Quad 204 project

As Technip’s project director for the £800million Quad 204 project, Richard Wylie is tasked with restoring one of the North Sea’s prized assets at a crucial time for the industry. The project involves the redevelopment of the Schiehallion field, 110miles west of Shetland, and the target is to squeeze another 25 years and 450million barrels of oil out of it. The BP-operated field started producing in 1998, but the old FPSO, which was towed away last year, now needs to be replaced along with subsea infrastructure.
