Jee, a pipeline, riser and subsea engineering firm, has been awarded a 3 year contract extension, with a further optional 2 years, for the integrity management of Perenco’s 1600km of pipelines and umbilicals in the southern North Sea.
This contract is part of Jee’s ongoing relationship with Perenco which has included pipeline integrity management and operational support for the past 6 years.
The contract means Jee will provide a complete pipeline integrity management service for Perenco, including risk-based inspection planning, technical integrity assessment, development and prioritisation of preventative and remedial activities, and representation to Government authorities. However, as a truly independent engineering company, Jee will not carry out the inspections of the pipelines, which ensures there is no conflict of interest, that inspection and remedial workscopes are both optimised and fully justified, that the most appropriate technologies are selected from the market, and that Perenco can competitively tender these workscopes to ensure best value. With this arrangement Jee is always safe-guarding Perenco’s best interests.
Commenting on the awarding of this contract, Mike Hawkins, Technical Director of Jee Limited said: “We are delighted to be continuing our work with Perenco. We have built a good relationship over the past 6 years and have developed not just a good understanding of Perenco’s pipelines and systems, but a good understanding and appreciation of the needs and drivers of Perenco as an operator.”
Stephen Southgate, Integrity Team Leader at Perenco, said “I have found Jee Ltd’s Pipeline Integrity Management Services to be professional, competent and impartial. The 6 years Perenco & Jee have worked together demonstrates a successful relationship we are both proud of.”
Jee has offices in London, Aberdeen and Abu Dhabi and operates worldwide to provide pipeline, riser and subsea engineering and training services for the oil and gas industry.
