Jee Ltd, a subsea engineering and training firm, has been awarded a three-year contract renewal from BP with potential value in excess of £4.5million.
The two companies have had a support contract in place for 10 years, with Jee providing global operations and project support to BP in locations including Aberdeen, Grangemouth and London in the UK and Angola, Azerbaijan, Norway and Trinidad. The contract extension will continue this work, with the annual value ranging from £1million to £2million, depending on the level of activity.
The ongoing scope of work has included corrosion management, span assessment and intelligent and operational pigging support of BP’s pipelines. Jee has also assisted in third party verification and ad-hoc technical support including data management, involving the collation, management and production of documentation such as preparedness response schemes for BP’s assets.
Jee is also assisting BP in decommissioning operations. Recently, Jee worked with BP on the North West Hutton decommissioning project, which included client representation during the decommissioning, as well as facilitating the close-out and handover process following the project.
Trevor Jee, Managing Director of Jee, said: “This contract extension is a testament to our relationship with BP as well as the quality of our engineering work. We have developed a strong reputation at Jee for our expertise and are proud to provide our whole life-of-field capabilities to support the company across such a wide international scope.”
Paul Benstead, Pipeline Engineering Manager of Subsea Operations at BP, said: “Jee has provided an exemplary service throughout the duration of the contract. The renewal is a result of the flexibility and reactive service provided, coupled with the range of engineering capabilities available. We look forward to continuing this successful relationship.”
