Product manufacturer and global supplier of fire, blast and heat hazard solutions – Mech-Tool Engineering Ltd (MTE) – has successfully secured a contract to deliver seven Remote Instrument Enclosures (RIE’s) to one of the world’s largest oil and gas production projects.

And the contract comes on the back of the Teesside based company already successfully securing – and well underway in delivering – its largest contract to date, worth GBP 37 million, on the TengizChevrOil project, located six miles east of the Caspian Sea.

With both contracts awarded by Wood Group Mustang, the new project will see MTE provide its global solutions as part of a full turnkey project which will include providing design and engineering expertise right through to onsite installation of the seven RIE’s. This is in addition to the company providing a field operations office module and twenty-one RIE modules.

The company believe that with its extensive experience of delivering projects of this nature on a global scale, its early involvement in the design evaluation stage of the project will lead to greater optimisation with the client benefitting from weight and time savings.

Speaking about the new contract win, Anthony Jones, Managing Director at MTE says, “We are delighted to have secured this additional contract win with Wood Group Mustang. We have been working with the company very closely on our latest project over the past six months or so, and securing this new contract is true testament that we are performing extremely well against high expectations, and as such, we are already delivering the first contract on schedule and within budget.”

“As one of the largest oil fields in the world, the key to ensuring the TengizChevrOil project is successful is collaboration in order to facilitate engineering excellence at all stages of the project. As part of our long-standing relationship with Wood Group Mustang, we will work closely with the company as an extension of their team to deliver the most optimum and bespoke solutions that meet industry standards,” concludes Jones.

The company will deliver RIE’s that will have high security levels and operate in extremely harsh environments, with ambient temperatures ranging from -36° to +50° C. The modules will provide the requisite seismic resistance related to the area with a minimum design life of 20 years.

The Tengiz field in Western Kazakhstan – discovered in 1979 – is now one of the world’s deepest producing super giant fields. Tengiz reservoir measures 19 kilometres wide by 21 kilometres long. Estimated original oil in place in the drilled and undrilled portions of Tengiz field is estimated to be approximately three billion metric tonnes producing 26 billion barrels.

MTE has recently been recognised as an approved manufacturer of CE compliant products and will now will now be authorised to attach CE markings to its range of globally recognised steel and aluminium protection products. This will allow the business to bid for new work across Europe in markets that the business has already well established itself, including nuclear, renewable and power generation.
