Petrofac has been awarded a contract by energy company Hess for the well-plugging and abandonment of four offshore wells that lie around 200km northeast of Aberdeen within the Rubie and Renee oilfields in the Central sector of Britain’s North Sea.
The wells, which were previously shut-in as part of a decommissioning phase, will now be fully abandoned.
Petrofac will deliver services related to detailed planning, direct procurement, and management of all sub-contracted services, including the provision of a semi-submersible rig.
The value of the contract was not disclosed, according to a report by UAE state news agency, Wam.
Commenting on the contract win, Petrofac Engineering and Production Services West’s, Nick Shorten, said: “We are delighted to secure our first well engineering scope with Hess.
