UK: BP Selects AMEC for Program Management of Its North Sea Projects
AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been selected by BP Exploration and Production to programe manage their existing portfolio of onshore and offshore projects in the North Sea, estimated to be worth £60 million over the four year contract.
As part of the BP-AMEC onshore global agreement announced last year, this ‘evergreen’ award will see AMEC providing engineering and project management services to BP’s North Sea Region. The projects are located to the west of Shetland, Northern North Sea, Southern North Sea and the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
Under this long-term, performance-based contract, AMEC’s work will range from front-end engineering design (FEED) through to construction management for multiple EPC (engineering, procure, construct) projects.
“I am extremely pleased that we are continuing to strengthen our already good relationship with BP,” said John Pearson, Managing Director of AMEC’s Europe & West Africa business. “This major award in the North Sea demonstrates BP’s ongoing confidence in our project delivery and programme management capabilities.”
Andrew Tozer, BP’s North Sea Projects General Manager said: “This new contract with AMEC will enable the BP North Sea Region Projects team to work as an integrated team delivering a significant portfolio of projects in the North Sea. AMEC has a strong team and access to high-quality engineering, project and construction management resources, which is key to the team’s project delivery objectives. We look forward to building our relationship with AMEC, and to the delivery of safe and compliant projects over the mid to long term.”
