Fabricom Awarded North Sea Contract by EnQuest Britain Ltd

Press Release
Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Newcastle-based facilities engineering company, Fabricom Offshore Services, announced that it has been awarded a major contract valued at more than £1million by EnQuest Britain Ltd, one of the UK’s leading independent oil and gas players.  
 
Fabricom is to support Aberdeen-based EnQuest in undertaking a significant programme of modifications and upgrades as part of a project to extend the operating life of the Thistle Alpha platform, which is located 275 miles north-north east of Aberdeen.  The work is part of EnQuest’s Late Life Extension (LLX) strategy. To execute this work, Fabricom will use a team of engineers from its engineering office in Newcastle.
 
EnQuest, the largest UK independent producer in the UK North Sea, builds on Fabricom’s increasing portfolio of clients such as Maersk Oil UK and Talisman Energy (UK).
 
Allan Cairns, Managing Director of Fabricom, said: “Securing this contract award opens up another exciting opportunity for Fabricom. EnQuest is an exciting, forward-thinking production company which is playing a lead role in ensuring the long-term sustainability of the North Sea, and it is a key milestone for Fabricom to become involved in supporting them with this work.
 
“The contract also reinforces the growing reach of Fabricom’s dedicated engineering expertise – particularly in Aberdeen’s offshore brownfield sector where resources are considerably constrained.   
 
“We have developed a proven team of engineers and technical consultants who are rapidly earning a reputation for consistent and robust delivery of a range of technical services and solutions through the life-cycle of assets. We are continuing to build on our talent pool which is integral to the company’s success.”
 
Fabricom specialises in multi-discipline engineering, design, procurement and project management supporting offshore construction, installation and commissioning. The company has a growing employee base of around 320 in its three locations which include Newcastle, Teesside and Aberdeen.
