Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract by BP for the provision of additional living quarters, as part of BP’s Life Extension Project on the Eastern Trough Area Project (ETAP) in the Central North Sea. The BP ETAP Life Extension Project will extend the life of the platform to 2030 and improve its operating efficiency.

The £36 million contract was awarded under Amec Foster Wheeler’s global agreement with BP to provide engineering and project management services for BP's offshore developments around the world. 90 Amec Foster Wheeler people, including eight graduates, are working on the contract.

The additional living quarters will comprise 16 modules, creating space for an additional 26 beds. The modules will sit on a grillage support with sliding connectors, which are usually found on bridges and onshore refineries. The sliding connectors allow enough movement to accommodate for the flex and stress from the weight of the new structures, increasing efficiency by removing the need to drill through the deck and weld to deck support beams.
