Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a three-year integrated services contract (ISC) by Maersk Oil covering its North Sea assets.
The value of the contract has not been announced. The integrated services will start in September 2015 and will run for three years, with the potential for a further two-year extension.
The provision of integrated services in the UK sector of the North Sea includes project management, engineering services, procurement, offshore construction and offshore operations support. The Amec Foster Wheeler team will make use of the company’s proven ‘more 4 less’ lean and scalable engineering processes and integrated delivery together with Scopus Engineering. Efficiencies from ‘more 4 less’ have been proven to deliver 30-60% savings, in time and cost, compared to traditional approaches.
John Pearson, Amec Foster Wheeler’s Group President for Northern Europe & CIS, said: “I am delighted that our oil and gas team has risen to the challenge of ‘not letting a crisis go to waste.' We have re-written how our services in the North Sea are delivered and have built a new way of working collaboratively, safely and efficiently to answer our customers’ needs in this tough market. I’m delighted that Maersk Oil have recognized that we have a truly different way of delivering efficiently for their assets, and I’m even more delighted that we can deliver significant value for Maersk and look forward to developing a long-term relationship.”
