Energy consultancy provider Add Energy has been awarded a maintenance build contract with BP for work on West Nile Delta (WND), a development located just off the north coast of Egypt.
Add Energy said on Monday that the contract, worth almost £1.4 million ($1.8 million), would see the company carry out the development of a full asset maintenance build.
The contract will include the delivery of an asset register and functional hierarchy build, equipment criticality assignment, development of maintenance strategies for critical and non-critical equipment, job plans and procedures, critical sparing, and BoMs development.
As part of Add Energy’s participation in the project, the energy consultancy firm has appointed Damon Bowler to oversee the project. Bowler worked in the oil and gas industry in various roles including over 15 years working for Shell in process safety, operational excellence, reliability, maintenance, operations, and projects, within onshore and offshore production assets, gas plants and LNG.
He also has ten years of maintenance, technical, and management consultancy experience within numerous industries including electricity & power, oil & gas, refining, and petrochemicals. Bowler is the chair of Step Change in Safety’s hydrocarbon release prevention work group and is currently leading the development and roll-out of new best practice guidelines for the offshore industry.
Peter Adam, executive VP of Add Energy, said: “As we continue to work closely with BP, we are delighted to have been selected for this project in Egypt. We have built a global library of maintenance strategies and procedures based on best practice and reliability data, which will enhance this project and support the operator in getting the best value for money.”
The West Nile Delta project, which comprises the development of a series of gas fields, is located 65 kilometers offshore Egypt. Work on the project is already under way at the site with the development due for completion in March 2018.
