Fluor’s Diversified Services unit Stork has secured a contract to provide multi-skilled deck crew services for petroleum exploration and production (E&P) company EnQuest’s UK assets.
Stork will provide services for EnQuest’s Heather, Thistle and Magnus offshore platforms in the northern North Sea for five years. Stork’s working crew will also offer services to the floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels in the northern and central North Sea.
EnQuest acquired its interest in Thistle field in 2009 and started work to extend its life expectancy.
The Heather oil field is located adjacent to the Broom field. Both fields are produced through a fixed steel offshore platform, Heather Alpha. Broom is connected through a subsea tieback.
In 2017, EnQuest acquired an initial interest in Magnus, which has significant potential, with only around half of about two billion barrels of oil equivalent in place recovered by the end of last year.
Stork president Taco de Haan said: “Stork is pleased to once again work with EnQuest by providing operational support services and continuing to help improve the efficiency of the company’s North Sea assets.”
Fluor said that the contract started in September 2019 and includes two one-year extension options. Stork will execute the services in a fully integrated approach.
The crew working at the UK sites will comprise multi-skilled personnel including team leaders, safety technicians, lifting operatives as well as scaffolders, offshore materials controllers, deck foremen and riggers.
The companies have not disclosed the value of the contract.
