Sharjah-based Petrofac has been awarded a four and a half-year contract extension worth US$70 million to provide integrated support services on the Cygnus gas field in the North Sea.
The contract will now last until December 2021 and includes the provision of enhanced construction services and production supervision, as well as the existing pre-operations, operations, maintenance, engineering and commissioning scope.
Walter Thain, managing director, Petrofac Engineering and Production Services, West, said: “This extension reflects our ability to provide effective integrated support services that make a difference to the safety and effectiveness of our client’s operations. We look forward to building on our involvement in this project as we work towards completion of the commissioning phases and into operations.”
Petrofac has been working on the pre-operational phase of Cygnus in 2011. Cygnus was the largest gas field discovery in the Southern North Sea for 30 years when it was discovered.
