Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded three contracts by BP to provide services to the Glen Lyon Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel as part of the Quad 204 Project, located 175 km west of the Shetland Isles, UK. The three reimbursable contracts are worth £31.5 million and will create 100 onshore and 50 offshore jobs.
The hook up and commissioning contract, worth £27 million, will run through to June 2017. Amec Foster Wheeler will hook up the new Glen Lyon FPSO to the Schiehallion and Loyal fields as part of the BP's Quad 204 redevelopment, extending the life of the two fields, enabling them to continue production beyond 2035.
Amec Foster Wheeler will also provide follow-on engineering as part of a contract for any residual works that emerge during the transition from the yard in Korea to BP operations. This contract continues to June 2017.
