PD&MS Group has announced it will continue to support a leading North Sea operator with engineering operations across its assets in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS), after securing a new contract for a further 3 years, with options to extend by a further 2 years.

The new scope follows on from the successful completion of a 2-year campaign with the E&P organisation, where PD&MS has delivered a range of modifications and capital projects including new wells, caisson repairs and replacements, as well as an accelerated scheduled lifeboat upgrade.

The company will also continue to support the operator’s assets with core construction crew and commissioning teams as well as provide repair orders and other lower complexity modifications.

The global engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning business currently employs around 800 personnel globally to support its operations in UKCS and Azerbaijan.

PD&MS VP of operations and projects, Liam O’Neil says, “Our fit-for-purpose approach has proven well suited to our client’s strategic objectives and principles and has established us as a trusted and reliable partner. One of our core values is to engage directly with our partners and we feel that the learnings we have implemented together over the last 2 years sets us up for even more success over the new contract term.”

Simon Rio, PD&MS Chief Executive adds, “Being awarded this 3- to-5-year contract renewal for a major client in the UKCS is testament to the consistent high quality of work our teams have been delivering on their assets over the past 2 years.”

“Our joint openness and collaboration has allowed us to apply value-adding and sustainable working practices and we look forward to working in partnership with them and providing engineering expertise to maximise recovery and support the energy transition agenda,” continues Rio.
