Unity secures multi-million-pound contract with Spirit Energy for well integrity services

Posted by Scott McLeod


Unity, Europe's largest provider of well integrity technology, services and engineering solutions, has been awarded a three-year contract by Spirit Energy to maintain wellhead equipment across twelve platforms in the East Irish Sea, Southern North Sea and the Dutch sector of the North Sea.  

As part of the work-scope Unity will deliver surface wellhead and Xmas tree maintenance services offshore, covering around one hundred wells, as well as providing onshore equipment testing, repair, refurbishment and storage from its base in Great Yarmouth. The contract, worth an annual sevefigure sum, has two additional two-year extension options. 

Gary Smart, Unity CEO commented: “Having previously worked with Spirit Energy to provide well integrity and technology solutionswe have a strong understanding of the company's operations. We are thrilled to add this service agreement to our growing portfolio of offshore contracts, which now includes over half of all major North Sea operators. 

We are well placed to deliver an all-encompassing service to our clients through a workforce of highly experienced offshore technicians. Our team has exceptional knowledge of all OEM wellhead equipment which will add value throughout this projectOur own range of spare parts, rental assets, innovative technology and specialised engineered solutions also offer reassurance for rapid equipment availability and solving any integrity challenges which may arise. 

Unity is currently developing additive manufactured wellhead components at its base in Aberdeen, to complement its maintenance and spare parts offering. These strong but lightweight products will be delivered to clients with significantly reduced cost and lead times. 

Mr Smart continued: “We believe that part of the reason we are a preferred supplier for many of our clients is not only the fast turnaround, competitive pricing and expertise within the company, but crucially, the additional value we can deliver through our own in-house product technology and engineering. We continue to invest in research and development to enhance this capability and are looking forward to introducing our additive manufactured components to the market later this year. 

Unity, part of the FrontRow Energy Technology Group, employs more than 120 skilled personnel across its bases in Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth, UK and Esbjerg, Denmark.
