Engineering groups Amec Foster Wheeler and Bilfinger Salamis have secured contracts with North Sea explorer and producer Repsol Sinopec Resources.

The multi-year deals – which have the potential for further extensions – will see both firms provide maintenance, construction and engineering support services.

They cover seven of Repsol’s offshore assets – comprising Arbroath, Bleo Holm, Buchan, Clyde, Claymore, Montrose and Tartan – and the Flotta oil terminal at Orkney.

Aberdeen-based Bilfinger Salamis said the work would secure jobs for more than 200 of its employees.

Chief operating officer Sandy Bonner said: “On the back of recent contract wins we believe that the investment made in innovation, technology and our people over recent years is being recognised by the marketplace, whilst continuing to benefit our employees and customers.

Alan Johnstone, Amec Foster Wheeler’s managing director for upstream asset solutions, said: “These new operations and maintenance contracts are all about efficient delivery, offering innovative solutions, and being accountable for what we do.”

Bill Dunnett, managing director of Repsol Sinopec Resources UK, added: “These awards will drive greater innovation and competition in the supply chain, and improve accountability within our own business.

“Performance of our new contracts is a fundamental element of our ongoing transformation to an effective and sustainable operation – even in the current challenging market. This is a great opportunity for the local supply chain that will help us deliver long-term value to our shareholders, partners and employees.”
