Aberdeen-headquartered engineering company, PD&MS Group, announces that several new onshore and offshore roles will be created to support its new multimillion dollar decommissioning contract with Spirit Energy.
Aberdeen-headquartered engineering company, PD&MS Group, announced Wednesday that several new onshore and offshore roles will be created to support its new multimillion dollar decommissioning contract with Spirit Energy.
Around ten new onshore positions and 15 offshore jobs will be filled by the end of the year, according to a company spokesperson, with the onshore staff based in Aberdeen and offshore workers based in the Morecambe Bay area.
The two-year contract with Spirit will see the PD&MS team decommission the topsides on two of Spirit’s unmanned Morecambe Bay gas field drilling platforms, located in the East Irish Sea.
PD&MS will also assist with the provision of independent intervention teams to support offshore visits during the preparation and construction phases. In addition, the company will manage the pipeline cleaning scope and interface with the wells plugging and abandonment and heavy lift contractors appointed by Spirit.
In the last six months, PD&MS has secured a trio of contracts worth more than $14 million (GBP 10 million) across three major North Sea late-life projects.
“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,” PD&MS Group CEO, Simon Rio, said in a company statement.
“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,” he added.
