Oil and gas service provider Petrofac has received a three year extension from Apache North Sea to provide engineering services, in a contract worth £100m per annum.

Under the terms of the contract, which has two optional one-year extensions, the company will provide onshore engineering services and onshore and offshore construction services for Apache’s assets.

The assets include Beryl Alpha and Bravo platforms in the northern North Sea and the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation gas processing plant at St Fergus in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

Jim House, Apache North Sea managing director, said Petrofac has consistently delivered on its expectations on the varied projects undertaken on the Forties development.

"They have also shown a relentless focus on improving safety performance and we look forward to continuing to work together to deliver our objectives across more of our North Sea assets," said House.

The contract will also include provision of topside brown-field and green-field services.

Bill Dunnett, Petrofac Offshore Projects and Operations managing director, said the company has worked with Apache since 2009 to deliver projects on the Forties field.

"As Petrofac develops its offshore capability we are delighted that Apache has extended our responsibilities to include engineering and construction work on the Beryl field and at the SAGE gas plant," Dunnett said.
