Xcite, Amec to Begin FEED Program for Bentley Field

Xcite Energy reported Wednesday that it has agreed with its partner AMEC to shortly begin a front-end engineering and design (FEED) program for the Bentley field in the UK North Sea.

During this process, the firm expects a wider services agreement to be formulated that will include: project and program management and controls; further detailed engineering and design; fabrication management; sub-contractor management; hook-up and commissioning; operations and maintenance planning and system build; and duty holder services.

Xcite CEO Rupert Cole commented:

"We are very pleased to have developed our existing relationship with AMEC to create the basis for these commercial arrangements. I believe that AMEC's expertise and track record in delivering major UKCS offshore and heavy oil projects will complement the company's own skillset to deliver a best in class development programme. This is another industry confirmation of Bentley as one of the largest development-ready North Sea fields and provides further, complementary support to the current farm-out process as we progress towards development."
