Petrofac secures well management job in North Sea

Oilfield services provider Petrofac has been selected by Dana Petroleum to provide well management services for all its UK North Sea-operated assets.

The contract, valued at about $60 million, includes both the Triton FPSO and the Western Isles FPSO vessels in the North Sea, Petrofac announced on Monday.

The contract is for two years contract with options for extension. It continues the existing five-year relationship, providing outsourced well engineering services to Dana’s 11 operated and 18 non-operated licences in the UK North Sea.

The contract scope includes full life cycle well engineering from concept through detailed design and planning, supporting well construction, intervention, and decommissioning activities. As part of its integrated well engineering offering, Petrofac will continue to manage the entire supply chain including rig or vessel hire and well service contracts.

Nick Shorten, Chief Operating Officer for Petrofac’s Asset Solutions business said: “I’m proud of the value we have been delivering to Dana for the last five years, but there is no better validation of our delivery than our customer’s decision to retain our services.”

This long-term UK contract builds on Petrofac’s tier-one wells and decommissioning experience and follows recent major decommissioning contract awards in Australia, Africa, and the Gulf of Mexico.

Andy Duncanson, Chief Operating Officer at Dana Petroleum added: “We are really pleased to award this new contract to Petrofac. Dana is committed to doing all we can to support the supply chain and nurture the specialist skills that are so important for both our business and the wider sector.”

Dana Petroleum has assets in the UK, the Netherlands, and Egypt. As reported last week, Dana sold its Dutch North Sea assets to Waldorf Production.
