MMC AMEC Wins Shell Contract in Philippines

AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, today announced that MMC AMEC, AMEC's Malaysian joint venture company with MMC Oil & Gas, has been awarded a detailed engineering design contract by Shell Philippines Exploration.

Under the two-year contract, the value of which has not been announced, MMC AMEC will provide project management, engineering and related services for an asset integrity and de-bottlenecking project on the Malampaya gas field in the Philippines and will cover both the field's integrated platform and onshore gas plant.

The contract is part of the Malampaya Deep Water Gas to Power development, which is estimated will provide enough gas to generate 30 per cent of the country's electricity until 2022. AMEC has provided support services to Malampaya since 2000.

"We are delighted to continue to provide support to our long-standing customer Shell on this major development," said Tony Cruddas, President of Growth Regions for AMEC's Natural Resources business.

Mr Noorul Khairi, Chief Executive Officer of MMC AMEC, added: "This is the first major contract to be delivered through MMC AMEC, which was set up in September 2007, and is a key milestone in its successful establishment."

Headquartered in Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur, MMC-AMEC specialises in large-scale integrated projects, including deepwater, as well as providing more traditional greenfield and brownfield engineering services for both upstream and downstream sectors of the global oil and gas market.
