Petrofac awarded three-year wells contract by i3
Petrofac, a global energy industry services provider, has been selected by i3 Energy to provide well engineering, well operations and well operator services for its UK North Sea license areas.
The new three-year contract follows the multi-year provision of well operator and project management services, resulting in the successful delivery of three fast tracked appraisal wells for i3 in 2019 on their Liberator and Serenity fields in the North Sea.
The first work planned under this new contract is the project to drill a fast-track appraisal well in the Serenity field later this year. Petrofac will be well operator and main contractor for the design and execution as well as for all services including Stena Don drill rig, vessels, helicopters and well services.
“I’m delighted that our world-leading wells expertise is supporting i3 Energy in the development of their existing North Sea discoveries to safely, efficiently and quickly maximize economic recovery,” said Nick Shorten, Chief Operating Officer for Petrofac’s Asset Solutions business. “We are proud of our unique skillset which, having helped i3 to discover Serenity in 2019, will now be supporting its progress toward field development.”
This latest long-term UK contract builds on Petrofac’s tier one well engineering experience and follows recent major contract awards in Australia, Africa, and the Gulf of Mexico.
