AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, announced that the Clough AMEC joint venture has been awarded a two-year contract extension by ConocoPhillips to provide operations and maintenance services to the Bayu Undan facilities located in the Timor Sea. The contract extension has an estimated value of AU$100 million. Clough AMEC is an incorporated joint venture established to provide engineering, operations and maintenance services to clients in the Australasian hydrocarbons industry. The joint venture has provided operations and maintenance services to the Bayu-Undan facilities since July 2004.
“Clough AMEC has a long history of supporting ConocoPhillips on Bayu Undan and this award reinforces the strength of our relationship and our commitment to the successful operation of this facility,” said AMEC's Director of Australia and South East Asia, Steve Ciccone.
John Smith, Clough CEO, said: “We are delighted to continue our long-term relationship with valued client ConocoPhillips on this important contract.”
Bayu-Undan consists of a floating storage and offloading facility and three fixed platforms, a remote wellhead platform, and a compression, utilities and quarters platform, which is bridge-linked to a drilling, production and processing platform. The scope of work includes implementation engineering, work package preparation, planning, hazard assessment, coordination, offshore field services and implementation. In addition, training and capability development in Timor Leste which is an important part of the contract, will build on the work Clough AMEC has already undertaken in the region.
