Engineering and project management company AMEC has scored a contract with TAQA for work on the Tern oil production platform in the North Sea.
AMEC will conduct engineering, procurement and construction of modifications to the platform to accommodate a new subsea tie-back to the Cladhan field in the northern North Sea.
Work begins immediately and will run through to December 2014. It is part of a long-term engineering framework agreement with TAQA, which began in 2012.
‘I’m delighted that we have won the opportunity to demonstrate to TAQA our brownfield engineering capability and we look forward to building a successful relationship with them’ said Alan Johnstone, Managing Director of AMEC’s Europe brownfield and asset management business.
AMEC recently opened two new offices in Aberdeen to support the new contract and existing contracts.
The Cladhan development is the third field that TAQA has developed and the largest project to date. Cladhan is expected to produce more than 17,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day initially with first oil expected early 2015.
