Stork awarded Shell Southern North Sea technical support contract
Stork, part of Fluor’s Diversified Services segment, was awarded a three-year contract by Shell UK Limited to provide technical support for a range of Shell’s UK-based ONEgas assets in the Southern North Sea, as well as onshore facilities, offshore installations, and vessels. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the first quarter of 2018.
“This award demonstrates Stork’s ability to provide technical solutions in the Southern North Sea region and Dutch sector of the North Sea,” said Taco de Haan, Stork’s president. “We look forward to our expanded relationship with Shell by the support of their UK operations.”
Stork will provide onshore support and technical expertise in disciplines such as inspection, electrical and mechanical as well as offshore leadership positions. The assets covered in the contract include several ONEgas Southern North Sea facilities, the onshore Bacton gas terminal, and two offshore installations - Leman Alpha and Clipper. Stork will also support the Seafox 4 barge, in addition to Shell’s two walk-to-work vessels, which provide specialist offshore maintenance and interventions supporting Southern North Sea operations.
“Stork has a rich heritage of supplying maintenance, modification and asset integrity management activities offshore, predominately in the UK Continental Shelf,” said Erik-Jan Bijvank, regional vice president of Stork’s UK, Middle East, Africa and Australia region. “By delivering these technical solutions onshore, we are broadening our ability to serve a key client with its operational needs.”
