EnerMech secure £6 million contract with Apache

EnerMech Ltd have secured a major contract with Apache North Sea Ltd to provide crane and maintenance services.

The Aberdeen-based mechanical services company have been awarded a three year contract worth an estimated £6 million.

The work scope covers all of Apache’s assets in the Forties Field and will result in the creation of at least six jobs.

EnerMech have an existing relationship with Apache in the UKCS and hope the new contract will lead to further opportunities to work with the independent operator on international projects.

EnerMech managing director for cranes and lifting, John Morrison, said: “This is one of our largest crane contracts to date and we are looking forward to working closely with Apache over the next three years.

“Over the last two years we have provide the same services to the majority of Apache’s Forties assets but this latest agreement means all the core-crew crane operation and maintenance staff throughout the Forties field will be provided exclusively by EnerMech.

“We hope that as our relationship develops there will be opportunities to work with Apache on projects out with the UK. With our recent acquisitions in the UAE and further international expansion planned in Asia, we are well placed to provide our whole range of mechanical services to operators such as Apache, wherever they are working.”
