Up to 80 jobs are to be created in Aberdeen after engineering and construction firm PD&MS landed a “significant” North Sea contract.
The company will carry out a range of engineering modifications and execute offshore construction on Dana Petroleum’s Triton and Western Isles FPSO assets.
Due to run for an initial three years, the contract also includes an option to extend to five years.
It forms part of Dana Petroleum’s strategy to create increased longer-term value through contractor consolidation in the modifications space.
“We have an extensive track record of delivering right-sized and innovative modification projects across the full asset lifecycle and combining this with our well-established decarbonisation expertise and experience means we are very well placed to deliver lower carbon and lower cost modifications to Dana over the term of the contract.”
A direct value for the contract wasn’t given but it’s part of a series from Dana Petroleum designed to “offer clarity and commitment” to the supply chain.
Taken together, they total £71 million pound and constitute the Korean-owned company’s “commitment to the regional economy”.
