Neptune extends Petrofac Cygnus contract

Privately held Neptune Energy has awarded a two-year contract extension to Petrofac for engineering services for its Cygnus Alpha and Bravo platforms in the UK Southern North Sea, it said December 21.

Petrofac will provide a range of brownfield engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) services for the Cygnus field which is capable of producing 6% of UK domestic gas demand. The award takes effect at the start of 2022.

It follows the award of a separate, three-year contract extension to the company earlier this year, for operations and maintenance support in the UK. Petrofac began work on the pre-operational phase of Cygnus in 2011.

Neptune Energy’s UK Managing Director, Alexandra Thomas, said: “Petrofac is an important partner for Neptune Energy in the UK with a strong and well-established understanding of the Cygnus assets.”

Petrofac’s Chief Operating Officer Nick Shorten said: “Our operations experience on Cygnus gives our engineering team unique insight into how to manage key brownfield integrity scopes and EPC modifications with ultra-efficient results.”
