UK: Oil & Gas Stork Awarded Contract Extension for Centrica’s UK Assets
Claimed to be Stork’s maiden evergreen contract in the UK, the contract involves Centrica’s onshore and offshore oil and gas assets in the region. Stork also has plans to open a new site in northeast England with an aim to expand its operations in the country.
Irving/USA – Fluor Corporation has recently announced that Stork, part of Fluor’s Diversified Services segment, was awarded a contract extension by Centrica Storage to continue providing fabric maintenance and associated services for the company’s UK onshore and offshore oil and gas assets. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the second quarter of 2019.
“Stork is extremely pleased to deepen our long-term relationship with Centrica in the UK by providing services to extend the life and efficiency of its assets in the northeast of England,” said Taco de Haan, Stork’s president. “Stork’s multi-disciplined team will provide a single point of interface for Centrica to provide greater efficiencies and a stronger integrated partnership that together will establish leading performance in safety, excellence, teamwork, operations and project value.”
Centrica Storage produces and processes gas from the Rough Gas Field in the Southern North Sea, 18 miles off the East Yorkshire coast on behalf of Centrica, an international energy and services company.
The contract extension took effect in June 2019 and sees Stork secure its first evergreen contract in the UK that will automatically renew each year with an annual review of performance. Stork’s scope of work to ensure the reliability of assets comprise specialist access systems including scaffolding, integrity engineering, non-destructive testing, bolting services, advanced online desanding as well as surface preparation and coatings.
The assets included in the contract are Easington Gas Terminal, East Yorkshire and offshore platforms in the Rough Gas Field, which is located in the Southern North Sea.
Stork has been providing maintenance services at Centrica’s UK assets on a fixed term contract since 2009.
