International engineering and design specialists PD&MS Group has been awarded a new 3-year contract with options for a further 3-year extension with Spirit Energy. The deal, worth an undisclosed multimillion-pound sum, will see the Aberdeen headquartered firm deliver complex modifications for the E&P business.
The engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning firm has worked with the operator since 2018, providing decommissioning support in the Morecambe Bay area. Building on this existing relationship, the new contract will see PD&MS carrying out campaigns both onshore and offshore in the execution of Spirit Energy’s complex modifications delivery strategy.
PD&MS vice president of operations and projects, Liam O’Neil says, “We’re delighted to have secured this contract with a key strategic and forward-thinking client. We’ve had a number of significant successes as a collective team over the last 2 years, and we’re looking forward to supporting Spirit Energy to achieve their overarching objectives.”
“We have the business stability, skill sets and innovation required to deliver more complex projects such as the unique opportunities presented within this 3-year campaign which includes onshore and offshore scopes,” continues O’Neil.
Donald Martin, contract owner for Spirit Energy says, “Complex modification projects have the potential to generate significant value through maximising the life of our assets. Together with PD&MS we are working to develop credible and predictable investment opportunities which will enhance recovery, lower operating costs and optimise our project execution model.”
Simon Rio, PD&MS chief executive says, “PD&MS remains committed to the UKCS and despite the challenges that face our industry right now, we are confident that our highly flexible and progressive offering across the full asset lifecycle can support operators to deliver safe and cost effective solutions over the longer term.”
“Our latest win with Spirit Energy is testament to the strength and depth of our business and we look forward to working in partnership together in the years ahead,” adds Rio.
