PD&MS has won a 2-year contract extension with Shell UK, extending an existing partnership through to April 2021, and securing in the region of 50 full time jobs.
The extension follows a successful track record of delivery for Shell UK during an initial three-year contract term, which included execution of minor modifications scopes, as well as larger and more complex projects for the supermajor on its North Sea assets.
Liam O’Neil, PD&MS’ director of projects says, “It’s fantastic that Shell has awarded us this extension, and we now have an opportunity to raise the bar even further in our EPCC space. Using the PD&MS delivery model, we pride ourselves on challenging the norm, working smarter and attacking problems from different angles. By doing so, we aim to provide long-term value to Shell UK, and our wider customer base, through continuous innovation and improvement.”
O’Neil continues, “Our aim is to continue working with Shell UK to develop innovative and value-adding solutions to common problems, which has been a key USP of PD&MS since inception in 2002. This contract extension is superb recognition of our commitment to continuous improvement, which in turn strengthens our market position and supports our efforts to fulfil our business growth strategy.”
In December 2018, PD&MS announced it would increase its onshore headcount by 25% during 2019, creating more than 100 new jobs in the UK. The firm, headquartered in Aberdeen, now expects to create a similar number of new opportunities offshore, in the same period, for construction and commissioning personnel.
