Sparrows Group and SPIE Oil & Gas Services have secured their first joint delivery project, which is in West Africa, after Total awarded the partners a crane maintenance contract on the Moho Nord offshore development.

Total started production from the Moho Nord deep offshore project, located 75 kilometers offshore Pointe-Noire in Congo, in March 2017. The project has a production capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The scope of the agreement for the two companies covers maintenance, inspection and testing services on five pedestal cranes on the development’s Likouf floating production unit (FPU) and tension leg platform (TLP) over three years, Sparrows informed on Thursday.

Starting in the third quarter of 2017, the project will be managed locally by SPIE, with expert specialist technical personnel delivered by Sparrows.

To remind, Sparrows and SPIE in August last year agreed a partnership with an initial view to developing a collective service offering throughout Africa before expanding the scope globally.

Stewart Mitchell, chief executive officer at Sparrows, said: “We have operated successfully in West Africa for several years however this is the first significant contract we have secured in the Congo.”

Sparrows added that the contract involves the review of existing plans before the firms take on full maintenance responsibility. This includes inspection and testing of all cranes, with corrective maintenance and spare parts supplied where required.

The cranes supplied for the Moho Nord development TLP were manufactured by Sparrows at its US manufacturing facility.

Richard Masson, general manager at SPIE Oil & Gas Services said: “Our partnership with Sparrows enables us to provide the highest standards in safety and operational reliability on all crane operations and maintenance work.”
