Petrofac has secured a contract to support Oranje-Nassau Energie (ONE) UK Limited, a subsidiary of Amsterdam based oil and gas producer Oranje-Nassau Energie B.V., as the company has become operator of the Sean gas field in the Southern North Sea as of 1 June 2015.
The contract, for Duty Holder Support Services, is worth US$45 million over three years, with the option of two one-year extensions, and commences immediately. The Sean assets comprise a manned, bridge-linked wellhead and production platform, a normally unmanned installation and a 30' export pipeline to Bacton. The facilities are located 68 miles offshore, north-east of Lowestoft. The contract will support around 40 on and offshore jobs and will see Petrofac provide operations and maintenance services plus a range of ancillary functions.
Walter Thain, Managing Director, Petrofac Offshore Projects and Operations said: 'ONE is entering the UK market for the first time as an offshore operator and we're delighted to be assisting them in this process through our Duty Holder Support Services model. This award reflects our long track record, not just of successful operations in the Southern North Sea, but of supporting independent oil companies to make the transition to operator in the UKCS environment. ONE has significant ambitions as an operating company and we look forward to facilitating and supporting their future plans.'
