BP awards three-year crane management deal to Sparrows

Oil major BP has awarded Sparrows a three-year contract to manage crane operations, maintenance, and deck services off the coast of Angola.

Sparrows said on Wednesday that the contract covered four cranes utilized on two floating, production, offloading, and storage (FPSO) vessels.

Namely, the deal covers the Greater Plutonio and the PSVM FPSOs, located in Blocks 18 and 31 respectively, situated 160 kilometers northwest of Angola’s capital Luanda.

Sparrows has two bases in Angola located in Talatona and Malonga and first worked with BP in the region in 2006.

This latest scope of work will see Sparrows deliver crane operators, maintenance, repair and refurbishment, complete deck services, as well as control and certification of fixed and portable lifting equipment. The company will also be responsible for full project management, planning and coordination, technical support, and training.

Offshore personnel will also support helicopter operations, fire-fighting duties, and maintenance of the onboard safety equipment.

Stewart Mitchell, Sparrows CEO, said: “Having successfully supported BP in Angola for a number of years, we are extremely pleased to be awarded this work for their ongoing crane management needs until 2021. Our personnel have an extensive knowledge of the assets involved and this win cements the immense confidence BP has in Sparrows and the level of high quality operations delivered previously.”

Earlier this month, Sparrows secured a three-year contract with Repsol Sinopec Resources UK to provide crane management services on its North Sea operating assets.
