UK duo pens maintenance deal with North Sea operator
Late life-cycle integrity specialists Well-Centric and Hunting have been awarded a £5 million ($6.2 million) North Sea asset maintenance contract with an unnamed UK oil and gas operator.
Well-Centric and Hunting will join forces to provide maintenance, storage, and re-certification of intervention related equipment for a ‘major’ oil and gas exploration and production operator in the North Sea.
According to Well-Centric, the contract is for three years and can be extended with a pair of two-year extension options.
Well-Centric’s CEO, Chris Mawtus, said: “At Well-Centric, we appreciate that collaboration can help yield the best results, and we will continue to develop the right partnerships with the best players in the industry to make sure that we deliver exactly what our customers need.”
Well-Centric has significant experience in providing well services, inventory and material management, workshop services, and specialist bespoke engineering at its base in Dyce, Aberdeen.
According to the contract, Hunting, which manufactures and supplies products to national and international oil and gas companies, will provide rental equipment as well as assist with re-certification of assets where required.
Alan Reid, Managing Director of Well Intervention at Hunting, said: “Working with like-minded companies to provide customers with a complete service offering has never been more important at this time. A Well-Centric and Hunting partnership is a great fit for this contract, and we look forward to providing significant benefits to the customer through the collaboration.”
Well-Centric added that the contract win would employ seven service specialists in Aberdeen.
