UAE: AMEC Secures Project Management Contract for Umm Lulu Phase 2
AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been awarded a Project Management Consultancy services contract by Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA OPCO) for their Umm Lulu Phase-2 full field development projects offshore United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The contract is worth $124 million (£76 million).
This five-year contract follows a previous award from ADMA OPCO in 2011 for the provision of services for the first phase of Umm Lulu and the Nasr phase 1 project.
Under this latest contract AMEC’s scope of work includes project management of the engineering, procurement and construction contractors who are delivering a large offshore super complex located in the Umm Lulu Field. The complex will comprise six bridge-linked platforms including gathering, separation, gas treatment and water disposal facilities, utilities and accommodation modules. The work is being delivered from the UAE and is expected to create 100 additional jobs for AMEC in Abu Dhabi.
“Further expansion in the Middle East is a key part of AMEC’s growth strategy,” said Ross Gibson, Operations Director, Gulf and North Africa. “It is good to see we are winning repeat business based on our previous performance and strength of our local capabilities.”
