Perenco Renews North Sea Contract
Anglo-French oil and gas company Perenco has expanded the scope of its support contract with Servelec Controls, the control, safety and information systems provider, in the southern North Sea of the United Kingdom.
Servelec has been providing service, support and maintenance for various Perenco control and safety systems for more than a decade.
Perenco and Servelec Controls have now extended their agreement for a further two years, covering three onshore sites: Dimlington Onshore Terminal in Humberside, Bacton Onshore Terminal in Norfolk and the Remote Group Control Room (RGCR) at Bacton; plus 11 associated offshore assets in the North Sea, including both manned and unmanned gas platforms.
The contractor supplies hardware and software maintenance services: Perenco’s own maintenance engineers are responsible for the equipment, with Servelec providing consultation and call-out support if needed.
Perenco’s Controls Team Leader, Oliver Tibbenham said: “Servelec Controls has consistently provided a reliable service, their engineers are highly knowledgeable and they’ve gone above and beyond when we’ve needed them to. They have not only kept our operations safe and productive, but suggested improvements when implementing modifications. We therefore want to keep them on board and have even extended the scope of their remit”.
The renewal also now includes a managed spares option which means Servelec Controls holds a supply of critical spare parts specifically for Perenco at its Sheffield site, which is ideally located midway between the client’s sites. This equipment can be tested prior to shipment. This helps to ensure minimised downtime and therefore improved productivity and safety because parts are readily available.
