Marathon Oil awards Brae engineering contract to Ingen Ideas
Ingen Ideas, an upstream oil and gas engineering consultancy and an Amec Foster Wheeler company, has announced the award of a contract worth approximately £8 million ($12.1 M) by Marathon Oil.
The five-year multi-discipline engineering contract covers Marathon Oil’s Brae Complex in the North Sea.
The contract started in October 2015 and will run for five years, with the potential for two further five-year extensions, Ingen said on Monday.
The company notes that the contract covers subsea and topsides, including onshore operations support, projects and modifications engineering, as well as technical consultancy.
Ingen says it will call upon engineering services from across the Amec Foster Wheeler group. This will provide the ability to rapidly mobilise and demobilise engineering resource with the flexibility to suit the workload needs as well as access to alternative similar high quality resources when availability, timing and duration demands, said Ingen.
Wayne Strachan, Ingen General Manager, said: “This is the first contract award of this scale for Ingen. It signifies how in the current economic climate, Ingen’s approach to consultancy engineering, with the global support of Amec Foster Wheeler, can add value by being agile, responsive and proportionate to the exact requirements of the project.”
