Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Aker Solutions has secured a three year contract to provide operations and maintenance services to Total E&P UK Ltd and its joint venture partner DONG E&P (UK) Ltd at the new Shetland Gas Plant (SGP).


The agreement includes provision of operations, maintenance and services support personnel for Total E&P UK at the new gas plant, which will receive gas from the Laggan and Tormore fields, west of Shetland.


The contract is valid for three and a half years with an optional two year extension. It will see the creation of up to 150 positions in support of the contract, both on-site at SGP and onshore in Aberdeen. Contract value is undisclosed.


Mike Forbes, UK managing director of Aker Solutions' maintenance, modifications and operations business said: "This is a significant contract for us and I am delighted that Total E&P UK has chosen to build on our long-standing partnership with the award of this important contract."


"The Shetland Gas Plant will be an integral part of the future UK gas supply and we are pleased our expertise and track record for delivery have been recognised and we can continue to be a part of the UK oil and gas success story together with Total E&P UK."


Aker Solutions has worked with Total E&P UK since 1989 continually developing the joint relationship and overall service provision.


More than 180 Aker Solutions employees are currently involved in delivering production and maintenance support services for Total E&P UK at both the St. Fergus gas plant in Aberdeenshire - where up to 20% of the UK's gas requirement is processed - and offshore on the Elgin Franklin assets.


Aker Solutions' contract party is Aker Offshore Partner Ltd.
