Energy Voice | Deal to service key North Sea facilities buoys firm

Energy service firm Bilfinger Salamis UK (BSUK) is to carry out work on four North Sea facilities under a multimillion-pound deal with Teekay Offshore.

The three-year contract, with two one-year extensions, follows a strong first quarter for Aberdeen-based BSUK as UK offshore oil and gas production ramps up on the back of higher commodity prices.

In March, the company secured a multimillion-pound technical manpower services contract – managed from its Great Yarmouth base – from Shell UK.

The southern North Sea is proving especially successful for BSUK, which has secured work worth more than £75m for its Great Yarmouth base alone during the past year.

Its latest deal will see it deliver fabric maintenance services on Teekay’s four North Sea floating production storage and offloading units – Petrojarl Foinaven, Petrojarl Banff, Voyageur Spirit and Hummingbird Spirit.

The contract covers surface preparation and coating application; insulation and cladding; fireproofing; scaffolding and access provision; vessel and tank cleaning; rope access and environmental services.

BSUK managing director Sandy Bonner said: “It further solidifies our position as a leading provider of modifications, maintenance and operations (MMO) services in northwest Europe.”

“We have continuously invested in infrastructure, technology and processes, positioning the company as a major provider with the capability to provide a fully integrated MMO service offering in both Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth.”

BSUK is part of German industrial services giant Bilfinger.
