Engineering firm Amec has secured a two-year extension to its contract with BP to provide maintenance, operations and project support to the Forties pipeline system in the North Sea.

Mike Horgan, managing director of Amec’s asset management business, said the firm has been working on Forties for the past 16 years and the contract renewal was worth between £10 million and £15m a year, depending on activity levels, and will run until the end of 2014.

He added: “We are pleased to be continuing our long-term relationship with BP and supporting them to meet the needs of the central North Sea’s oil and gas development.”

The Forties system has a capacity of more than 750,000 barrels a day and carries around 40 per cent of the UK’s oil production.
