AMEC to Support BP's Deepwater Tubular Bells and Kodiak Discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico
AMEC has been appointed by BP to provide engineering services for the Tubular Bells and Kodiak discoveries in deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
AMEC is evaluating several potential development options for selection of a preferred project option to advance into front-end engineering design (FEED), which provides an opportunity to influence overall cost, weight, schedule and facility performance at the early stages of the project.
The contract is AMEC's first deepwater work to be executed under the global agreement with BP for offshore engineering and project management services and follows the announcement in November 2008 of the contract for support on the BP Clair project in the UK North Sea.
The Tubular Bells-Kodiak award continues AMEC's long history of successful support of BP projects, including the Mardi Gras Transportation System to deliver deepwater Gulf of Mexico production to market. AMEC's role in the Mardi Gras project encompassed engineering and project management services on the onshore and offshore pipelines, facilities and platforms.
AMEC also has contributed to major BP projects in other regions around the globe, including Clair in the UK's offshore West of Shetlands area and the Azeri, Chirag and Gunashli fields in the Caspian Sea.
