Atkins supports Maersk Oil North Sea IRM works

Atkins has been awarded an engineering support contract covering three of Maersk Oil’s UK assets in the North Sea.

The Gryphon FPSO, Global Producer III FPSO and Janice FPU are planned for major offshore inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) works this year, in addition to field expansion works. Maersk has committed to this plan by contracting a dedicated Dive Support Vessel (DSV) for 365 days.

In order to ensure this is completed safely and on time, a team of eight process engineers from Atkins will support Maersk Oil in developing the scope, maintenance plans, commissioning procedures and providing a technical interface between the dive vessel and Maersk Oil’s assets. The Atkins team will be managing the scopes through to completion with the provision of offshore engineers and a project management role.

Atkins’ project manager and senior process engineer, Mark Wood, commented: “This is a truly multi-faceted contract involving many challenges as we seek to assist Maersk Oil with the enhancement of their existing North Sea assets.

“The agreement builds on a strong record of process engineering support to Maersk Oil over many years so is further testament to our great working relationship. We look forward to delivering successful and incident-free campaigns for each of their assets.”

Wood has recently been shortlisted for a UK Oil and Gas Industry Safety Award under the Preventative Safety Action category. This is in recognition of his actions during the Gryphon Area Recovery Project in 2012/13 – another example of a Maersk Oil and Atkins collaboration ensuring projects are completed safely through good planning and intervention when required.
