Sparrows Group has secured a three-year contract to provide crane management services for Chrysaor’s three operating assets in the UK North Sea.

Chrysaor will take ownership of the assets later this month from Shell.

Earlier this month, the company closed the acquisition of an asset package in the North Sea from Shell, in a deal valued at $3bn.

Under the contract, Sparrows is required to operate and maintain seven cranes across the Armada, Everest and Lomond gas platforms located 233km-250km east of Aberdeen in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

“The company has previously worked for BG and Shell on the three installations over the past ten years.”

Sparrows Group CEO Stewart Mitchell said: “We have a long and accomplished history working on these assets, having supported Shell and BG for a number of years. This award is testament to our team’s reputation for delivering results and our safe working practices.”

The company has previously worked for BG and Shell on the three installations over the past ten years.

Services provided by the company for the platforms in the past include the delivery of offshore crane operations and maintenance, including the supply of rigging lofts and inspection services.

Besides, other services offered by the company include overseeing the onshore management of all crane maintenance strategies and related engineering scopes.
