Stork to continue providing services on Centrica’s UK assets
- Business & Finance
Stork, part of Fluor’s Diversified Services segment, has been awarded a contract extension by Centrica Storage to continue providing fabric maintenance and associated services for the company’s UK onshore and offshore oil and gas assets.
Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the second quarter of 2019, the company said on Thursday.
“Stork is extremely pleased to deepen our long-term relationship with Centrica in the UK by providing services to extend the life and efficiency of its assets in the northeast of England,” said Taco de Haan, Stork’s president.
“Stork’s multidisciplined team will provide a single point of interface for Centrica to provide greater efficiencies and a stronger integrated partnership that together will establish leading performance in safety, excellence, teamwork, operations and project value.”
Centrica Storage produces and processes gas from the Rough Gas Field in the Southern North Sea, 18 miles off the East Yorkshire coast on behalf of Centrica plc, an international energy and services company.
The contract extension took effect in June 2019 and sees Stork secure its first evergreen contract in the UK that will automatically renew each year with an annual review of performance. Stork’s scope of work to ensure the reliability of assets includes specialist access systems including scaffolding, integrity engineering, non-destructive testing, bolting services, advanced online desanding as well as surface preparation and coatings.
The assets included in the contract are Easington Gas Terminal, East Yorkshire and offshore platforms in the Rough Gas Field, which is located in the Southern North Sea.
Stork has been providing maintenance services at Centrica’s UK on a fixed term contract since 2009.
It is worth reminding that back in June 2017 Centrica revealed its plan to cease operations at its ageing Rough gas storage facility located in the Southern North Sea due to operational issues.
As a consequence, Centrica Storage then started making plans to permanently end Rough’s status as a storage facility, and to produce all recoverable cushion gas from the field, which was estimated at 183 bcf.
