The contract, the value of which is confidential, further reinforces AMEC's position as a leading services provider in the region, where the company is already involved in a range of both onshore and offshore projects.
AMEC will provide initial support services to the Chirag-1 Production Platform in the Caspian Sea, 120km south east of Baku, followed by a further five offshore installations as they become operational. AMEC's work will include engineering of capital expenditure (CAPEX) modifications to offshore operational facilities and their management and implementation.
AMEC has provided asset support to BP in Azerbaijan since 1997, most recently for the Chirag Early Oil Facility, which has led to this latest success for the company. An important aspect of this work is sustainability, including training of local people to develop and maintain a business that is both viable and valuable for the region.
"We are delighted to have been awarded this contract, which is another milestone in an excellent relationship with BP in asset support services," said Neil Bruce, Managing Director of AMEC's Oil and Gas division.
"In addition to eight years of experience with BP in Azerbaijan, we have shared learning, expertise, systems and capabilities in other important hydrocarbon producing regions such as the Gulf of Mexico and the United Kingdom Continental Shelf. This assists us in delivering to BP long-term sustainable solutions.
