Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract extension by Centrica for its Morecambe Bay onshore and offshore gas production assets. The Engineering, Construction and Project Support (ECAPS) contract includes work for operations and maintenance, minor modifications and projects. The original contract awarded to Amec Foster Wheeler in 2011 is now extended for a further three years to the end of 2019. Around 200 jobs will be secured as a result of the contract extension.

Applying Amec Foster Wheeler's More 4 Less efficiency approach to the ECAPS contract has resulted in significant cost savings, with streamlined engineering, while maintaining high safety standards. Centrica, Amec Foster Wheeler and their contract partners have earned external recognition for their approach, winning the Global IChemE ‘Team award’ for their safe and efficient Eductor project execution* last year.

Jim Lenton, President, Asset Support, Oil, Gas & Chemicals, Amec Foster Wheeler

„ I’m delighted that the team’s application of our 'More 4 Less’ culture, systems and processes has resulted in this contract extension from Centrica. We are justifiably proud of our safe and efficient delivery across both on and offshore assets.„

*The North Morecambe Eductor and metering project team were responsible for the design, fabrication and installation of a 70 tonne access walkway on the unmanned Centrica North Morecambe gas production platform, in the East Irish Sea. This included an Eductor package to prevent back-out of the North Morecambe wells and a metering package to accurately record the flows. This £16million project, executed in 2015, provides incremental production of gas sustaining energy for 100,000 UK homes. The integrated project team, made up of individuals from a range of companies, safely and efficiently delivered the scope on time and within budget.
