AMEC wins Emirates offshore contract

AMEC has won a $124 million  (£76 million) contract to manage an offshore ‘super complex’ oil field project in the United Arab Emirates that will create 100 new oil and gas jobs in Abu Dhabi.

 

The five year contract was awarded by Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (ADMA OPCO) for work on phase two of the Umm Lulu full field development. AMEC has been working on phase one of the project and the Nasr phase one project since 2012.

 

The scope of work includes project management of the engineering, procurement and construction contractors on the development which will include six bridge-linked platforms. It also includes gathering, separation, gas treatment and water disposal facilities, utilities and accommodation modules.

 

AMEC had previously won the 30 month project management consultancy contract for the ‘execute phase’ of Umm Lulu phase one and Nasr phase one, covering the engineer, procure, construct (EPC) phase of these large offshore projects.

 

Phase one included construction of an early production facility, 33 wellhead towers, pipelines and pumps to deliver a production capacity of 125,000 barrels per day (bpd) at an overall cost for the EPC of $450 million.

 

Ross Gibson, AMEC’s Operations Director Gulf and North Africa, said: “Further expansion in the Middle East is a key part of AMEC’s growth strategy. It is good to see we are wining repeat business based on our previous performance and strength of our local capabilities.”
