Petrofac Secures Services Contract Offshore Aberdeen

Petrofac has secured a ‘duty holder’ contract worth $250 million, which will see it support Anasuria Operating Company Limited as the company takes over as license operator of the Anasuria cluster offshore Aberdeen.

The initial five-year contract, which has additional options to extend, will secure around 65 jobs, according to Petrofac. Under the agreement, Petrofac will provide an “integrated, aligned approach” to the operation and development of the cluster and will assume full responsibility on behalf of AOC for FPSO operations as well as for monitoring and managing pipelines and wells.

located 108 miles east of Aberdeen, the Anasuria cluster comprises the Anasuria FPSO and the Teal, Teal South and Guillemot A fields, as well as a 38.65 percent interest in the Cook field.

Walter Thain, managing director of Petrofac Engineering & Production Services, said in a company statement:

“We are delighted to have completed a successful and safe transition of operations for Anasuria and to continue to support AOC and help them to make a difference as they take up their first UKCS operatorship. 

“AOC’s acquisition of the Anasuria cluster is really an investment in the future of the North Sea and it is a positive development for our industry during these challenging times.  We aim to support AOC as they work to realise their vision for Anasuria to increase production and extend the life of field. We will apply our Duty Holder expertise in the safe delivery of an innovative operating model, designed to eliminate waste and maximise efficiency.”
