- Business & Finance
Jersey Oil & Gas (JOG), an independent oil and gas company, has awarded contracts for the Greater Buchan Area (GBA) development in the North Sea to Rockflow Resources and Petrofac.
JOG said on Monday that Rockflow would provide subsurface evaluation support and Petrofac would provide facilities and well support for the concept selection phase of the GBA development project.
JOG said it had developed a close working relationship with both Rockflow and Petrofac during the last two years and both companies were instrumental in supporting JOG in its successful application in the UKCS 31st Supplementary Offshore Licensing Round that resulted in the award of the GBA development opportunity.
Andrew Benitz, CEO of Jersey Oil & Gas, commented: “I am delighted to announce the award of contracts to both Rockflow and Petrofac. We look forward to building on our valued relationship with both companies as we progress through the critical concept selection phases of the Greater Buchan Area development project.”
In a separate statement on Monday, Petrofac said it would combine expertise from its Engineering and Consultancy Services business in Woking, and Well Engineering team based in Aberdeen, to deliver an integrated concept package in support of JOG’s Field Development Plan.
Nick Shorten, Managing Director for Petrofac Engineering and Production Services West, said: “Today’s award is the culmination of a two-year collaboration with JOG and Rockflow Resources Ltd to prepare license applications. We are thrilled to be supporting the next stage of this exciting development.
He added: “This opportunity enables us to bring that experience together and fully integrate our services to develop a concept that will maximize recovery.”
