- Latest award for PD&MS with Spirit Energy-

Leading international engineering company, PD&MS Group, has secured a trio of contracts worth more than £10 million across three major North Sea late-life projects in the last six months, making the firm the UKCS market leader in the area of engineering and construction of topside modifications for the decommissioning sector.

The latest award for the Aberdeen-headquartered company is a multimillion-pound contract from Spirit Energy to decommission the topsides on two of its unmanned Morecambe Bay gas field drilling platforms, located in the East Irish Sea.

PD&MS is currently supporting similar decommissioning projects of North Sea installations for two major operators through offshore heavy lift contractor, Allseas Group S.A.

The two-year campaign for Spirit Energy will see the PD&MS team being responsible for decommissioning and operations on the DP3 and DP4 unmanned installations as they move into the end-of-life phase, after contributing to the ongoing gas production from Spirit Energy's Morecambe Bay gas fields.

The firm will also assist with provision of independent intervention teams comprising operations and management personnel to support offshore visits during the preparation and construction phases. As well as this, PD&MS will manage the pipeline cleaning scope and interface with the wells plugging and abandonment and heavy lift contractors appointed by Spirit Energy.

Around 10 new onshore positions at PD&MS and 15 offshore roles will be created to support the specialist provider of engineering, procurement and construction services for the global oil and gas industry during the project.

PD&MS Group chief executive officer, Simon Rio, said: “We have secured over £10m in decommissioning projects in the past six months and this most recent contract win sees PD&MS delivering on three significant North Sea decommissioning projects at the same time. The new award is testament to the ongoing dedication and expertise of our people, and our close alignment to Spirit Energy's internal key drivers.

“Our team has extensive experience across all aspects of the decommissioning process from the initial project management, engineering and planning stages right through to arranging material disposal and site clearance. This ensures we can provide the most safe and appropriate construction and removal solutions while reducing all unnecessary complexity from projects. Our company culture and ethos not only ensures safe operations and the highest quality of work, but also helps to avoid costly liabilities for operators.”
