PD&MS Bags Engineering Contract with BP

Oil and gas engineering consultancy PD&MS Energy announced Wednesday that it has won a major engineering services contract for platform-based drilling rigs with BP plc.

The three-year contract will see PD&MS deliver engineering, procurement and offshore construction services for upgrades on all BP platform-based drilling assets in the North Sea, said the Aberdeen-based company.

The scope of the contract includes blowout preventer/well control upgrades, five-yearly re-certifications and general drilling rig repair works.

PD&MS Managing Director Simon Rio commented in a statement:

"We are clearly delighted to be awarded this formal contract with BP. This signifies a milestone in the development of the company, and puts us at the top end of our niche market. With similar prestigious long-term contracts already in place with other leading industry giants, we are extremely proud of what we have achieved here at PD&MS."
