Under the terms of the agreement, Petrofac will continue to supply personnel to the Unity platform in the central North Sea, the onshore Cruden Bay Terminal and other sites.

The contract has also been reconfigured to include engineering and construction support.

Petrofac said the award strengthens its existing relationship with Ineos FPS in the UK, where it already provides a maintenance consultancy service.

Nick Shorten, managing director for Petrofac Engineering & Production Services West, said: “Over the past year we have been supporting Ineos FPS as they work to transform the Forties Pipeline System, and during this time our teams have developed a great understanding of both our client’s onshore and offshore sites.

“The enhancement of this contract demonstrates our client’s continued confidence in our ability to maintain safe operations while delivering improvements to production efficiency. We very much look forward to continue working with Ineos to unlock further value.”
