    AMEC secures share of seven-year North Sea services contract

    News // August 1, 2003
    In joint venture with Dutch partners, AMEC has secured a strategic, seven-year contract, worth an estimated 475 million, to provide extensive support services to Shell's facilities in the UK and Dutch sectors of the Southern North Sea. The contract renews and extends AMEC's existing operations in the Southern North Sea for Shell, which came up for re-bid earlier this year.

    The 'ONEgas' contract was jointly awarded to the AJS joint venture (AMEC, Jacobs Engineering and Stork) by Shell UK Exploration and Production (Shell Expro) and its sister company, Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM). It is one of the largest Integrated Service Contracts ever let by an oil and gas major and will involve engineering, maintenance, modifications and logistical support for 53 offshore platforms across the Southern North Sea and onshore facilities at Bacton in the UK and Den Helder in Holland.

    Up to 1,200 personnel will be employed by the joint venture in three main locations - Gt Yarmouth in the UK, Amsterdam and Assen in Holland - with support from offices in Aberdeen, London and Leiden in Holland.

    The contract will be fully operational by 1 January 2004.
