John Brown Hydrocarbons Wins Contract from EnCana

John Brown Hydrocarbons Limited secured a major contract from EnCana UK Ltd., on behalf of itself and its co-venturers BG Group, Intrepid Energy and Edinburgh Oil and Gas for the Concept Definition and Project Specification(CDPS) of the Buzzard Field including topsides, and export pipelines. Once complete the platform will be located in the UK Central North Sea some 55 km north-east of St. Fergus.

The design work will be undertaken at John Brown’s headquarters in Paddington, Central London. Speaking about the award from EnCana, Ian Corbidge, Managing Director of John Brown Hydrocarbons Limited said: "This award clearly demonstrates that John Brown is a major player in the offshore market."

"Since our sale from Kvaerner last year we have been re-establishing our new corporate identity and this award is the vindication of our efforts to date. Our heritage includes not only the original John Brown, but Humphreys and Glasgow, Earl and Wright and Davy Offshore, and we have many of the people from these companies still with us. Under our former parentage these company names all but disappeared. We are determined to deliver a first class product. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to remind the industry what we are capable of. We view the Buzzard award as a significant step in the global expansion of the company and it's offshore, onshore and pipelines business", Ian Corbidge commented.
