Sparrows Group has secured a five-year contract to deliver hydraulic, lifting and rigging services for Maersk Oil’s UK floating assets.

The agreement will see Sparrows support the operator in strengthening its lifting operations for the Global Producer 3 (GP3) and Gryphon FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) and the new Culzean FSO (floating storage and offloading).

The scope encompasses hydraulic services including maintenance, repair and parts and materials procurement; as well as the supply, management and certification of all lifting gear.

Additional mechanical engineering services, including failure modes, effects and criticality analysis studies; finite element analysis; the design and build of structural and mechanical assemblies and small pressure vessels; reverse engineering and fabrication; and lifting operations and lifting equipment regulations inspections, are also included.

The Culzean gas condensate field has resources estimated at 250-300 MMboe. Located in the Central North Sea, the high pressure, high temperature field is expected to start in 2019 and produce enough gas to meet 5% of total UK demand at peak production in 2020/21.
