Peterson, a UK-based logistics provider for the energy sector, has been awarded a contract to support Ithaca Energy’s Harrier field development in the UK North Sea.
Peterson said on Thursday that its first contract with Ithaca is set to begin in the second quarter of 2017.
The contract is expected to last around six months and will be managed and serviced by Peterson’s quayside and warehouse facilities in Aberdeen.
Chris Coull, Regional Director of Peterson, said: “We are looking forward to supporting Ithaca with the Harrier development. We are well aligned with the needs of independent operators, such as Ithaca, who are looking to the supply chain to provide efficient and innovative services to support them to deliver lower risk growth across their UK asset portfolio.”
The Harrier development is part of the Ithaca-operated Greater Stella Area (GSA), located in the heart of the Central Graben area of the Central North Sea. The GSA licenses contain the Stella and Harrier fields, both currently in the development process with Stella expected to produce first hydrocarbons this February.
Ithaca said mid-January that the development drilling on the Harrier field is expected to be completed in 2017, followed by production start-up in the second half of 2018. The field comprises the Harrier Ekofisk and Harrier Tor chalk reservoirs, both containing gas condensate.
The GSA area also contains the Hurricane discovery, the Twister prospect, and the Vorlich discovery, which is located 10 kilometers North of Stella.
As it gears up for the Harrier drilling project, Ithaca also recently awarded a contract for helicopter services to the Belgian helicopter services company, NHV Group.
