Petrofac Selects RBG for Fabic Maintenance at UKCS Assets

RBG has been awarded a multi million pound fabric maintenance contract by Petrofac Offshore Engineering & Operations (OE&O).

The contract, to provide fabric maintenance services for all Petrofac UKCS Duty Holder assets plus offshore construction projects, is worth approximately £8m per annum and was won following a competitive market tender. The three year contract, with two one-year options, commenced on November 6, 2009 and is being managed via RBG's Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth operations.

Gordon Smith, VP, Commercial & Legal, OE&O commented, "The award of this contract represents a new approach by our Offshore Engineering & Operations business unit in its relationships with key supply chain providers. We are working with one supplier on this contract where we previously used several on a call-off basis. Our objective is that this consolidation will lead to increased efficiencies for Petrofac and to deliver even greater value for our customers."

This contract enables RBG to provide Petrofac with a broad range of fabric maintenance and support services, including specialist cleaning, inspection and construction support services.

Dave Workman, RBG's recently appointed CEO, commented, "RBG is delighted to receive this important contract award from Petrofac. We are committed to building the unique partnership that Petrofac seeks such that our combined capability will be wholly focused on delivering the best possible performance outcome for Petrofac and its customers."
