Air Energi, the global workforce solutions provider for the energy, process and infrastructure sectors, has been selected to supply contract personnel to Qatar Petroleum.
Air Energi said they signed the five-year agreement, with a two-year extension option, to support the national oil company’s (NOC) offshore redevelopment project at the Bul Hanine oil field.
Located 120 kilometres from Qatar’s east coast, the $11 billion Bul Hanine redevelopment project is designed to double production rates at the offshore field, where the NOC plans to drill an additional 150 wells through to 2028.
The overall project includes the replacement and upgrade of existing offshore production facilities and the development of a new onshore natural gas to liquids processing plant in Mesaieed, Air Energy said.
Air Energi says it will source candidates across a range of disciplines, including engineering, construction and health, safety, environment and quality, with a peak of personnel required in 2017 when detailed design and construction starts.
Andy Ryan, VP Middle East and Central Asia, Air Energi, said: “One of the main challenges of this project will be sourcing the caliber of personnel required with specific experience in offshore redevelopment projects. But we are confident that we will achieve this by accessing our significant candidate network with a proven knowledge of similar offshore projects..”
