Aquaterra Energy, a leader in global offshore engineering solutions, has secured the company’s largest riser analysis contract to date, a five-year deal on April 13 with a major Middle Eastern operator to provide green and brownfield riser analysis.
Combined with other recent project wins in the Middle East, Aquaterra Energy will now deliver an estimated £1 million ($US1.37 million) of riser analysis work over the five-year period.
Acting as a primary riser analysis supplier, Aquaterra Energy will manage and deliver multiple scopes of long-term work using its in-house analysis teams. Located in Abu Dhabi and Qatar, the contracts incorporate a wide range of recurring brownfield riser analysis projects, with future greenfield opportunities. The brownfield platform modification projects include slot recovery, slot addition and assisting development of inspection program of existing conductors.
“The Middle East is embarking on its next stage as an oil and gas producing region,” Andrew McDowell, operations director at Aquaterra Energy, said. “Operators are now continuing to invest in new projects but also finding themselves with a glut of legacy assets coming to end-of-life from earlier generations of investment. To safely and efficiently maximize output, our expert riser analysts are perfectly placed to support operators with both green and brownfield projects. With a long-term contract in place, I see this as the start of a major period of growth for us in the region.”

Schlumberger has spent billions of dollars to take over managing customers' oil fields, in some cases becoming an investor in the fields, while seeking to profit from increased oil production.
