OIL and gas engineering consultancy PD&MS Energy has bagged a three-year contract with BP that is understood to be worth tens of millions of pounds.

The Aberdeen-based firm will today unveil a deal to deliver engineering, procurement and offshore construction services for upgrades on all BP’s drilling platforms in the North Sea.

PD&MS, which was taken over by the Middlesburgh-based Wilton Group in 2008 and now employs 200 staff, is already upgrading the oil giant’s Ula rig in Norwegian waters. Simon Rio, managing director at PD&MS, said: “This signifies a milestone in the development of the company and puts us at the top end of our market.”

Previous work carried out by the firm includes fitting out the Rowan Norway rig to drill Xcite Energy’s Bentley field in the North Sea.
