EnerMech Secure Largest Ever Process and Pipeline Contract

Mechanical engineering group EnerMech has been awarded a contract covering TOTAL E&P UK Limited’s UK North Sea assets which could be its largest process services contract to date.

The value of the five year agreement, which covers the St Fergus and Shetland gas terminals and Alwyn, Dunbar, Elgin and Franklin platforms, was not disclosed.

Aberdeen-headquartered EnerMech already provides cranes and lifting and equipment rental services to TOTAL but the contract award marks a major step forward for its Process, Pipeline & Umbilicals (PPU) division.

The workscope incudes the provision of topside process services including flange management, on site in-situ machining, nitrogen services, ultra high-pressure system nitrogen/helium leak testing, chemical cleaning and training services.

EnerMech’s UK general manager of PPU, David Logan, said: “The award of this significant contract is further evidence that clients are looking for innovative thinking and flexibility of integrated service provision and not just more of the same.

“We are looking forward to assisting TOTAL E&P UK Limited in supporting their assets in the North Sea and this award reaffirms our position as a major supplier of process services to the oil and gas sector.”

EnerMech’s other service lines include cranes and lifting; valves, hydraulics, industrial services, equipment rental and training services. The company employs more than 2000 staff in 18 countries and is forecasting 2014 revenues will grow by £80 million to £280 million.

The recent acquisitions of US-based cranes and lifting business Diversified Oil Field Services Inc and valve specialist Control Valve Technology in South Africa has extended EnerMech’s international presence in two important sectors.
