Gas plant awards service and maintenance contract

14 December 2010

Engineering services company Hydratight’s expertise has won the company a four-year service and maintenance contract for three of Shell’s major North Sea facilities. Hydratight will handle maintenance and shutdown operations at Shell’s St Fergus gas plant at Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, the Mossmorran fractionation plant on the outskirts of Cowdenbeath, Fife and the Braefoot Bay marine gas terminal near Aberdour.

Hydratight won the contract in a competitive five-way tender to supply engineering services and machining work at the facilities, which bring natural gas and other liquids to the mainland from the North Sea.

“We were able to show that our Health and Safety track record and leak-free free start-up performance, technical ability and commercial compliance were second to none,” explained sales engineer John McKay.

“We have worked with Shell for many years — 18 years at St Fergus — but always previously on a job by job basis. This is a welcome show of confidence in our abilities. We are proud to say we probably have the best technicians on the market for this kind of work.”
Hydratight’s main role will be to offer bolting and machining services during planned shutdowns, but the company will also run a six-hour callout service in emergencies.

Around 40 Hydratight staff have recently undertaken a two-month shutdown schedule at St Fergus.
