21/03/2011


London, United Kingdom (22 March 2011) - AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been awarded a £32 million engineering, procurement and construction contract by Teesside Gas and Liquids Processing (TGLP) for the modification and extension of the Teesside Gas Processing Plant (TGPP) at Seal Sands, Middlesbrough, UK.

The contract strengthens AMEC's asset support market position in the downstream oil and gas industry. 

AMEC will commence the work immediately, with completion scheduled in April 2012. 

On completion, the work will allow the TGPP facility to receive natural gas from operator RWE Dea's Breagh field, one of the North Sea's largest recent gas discoveries, which is located approximately 100 kilometres southeast of Teesside. Once at TGPP, the gas will be processed and then exported via National Grid's national transmission system to the main areas of demand within the UK, helping to secure the UK's future energy supply. 

"AMEC's strong safety performance and proven track record in delivering complex asset support projects have been major factors in winning this contract," said John Pearson, Managing Director of AMEC's Europe & West Africa business. "Our asset support capability is an important part of our service to customers and our Vision 2015 business strategy."

Andy Heppel, CEO of TGPP, said, "We are delighted to announce the award of this contract and are looking forward to working with AMEC  and our plant operator, px Limited, to deliver a safe and successful project to modify the Teesside Gas Processing Plant. The contract award is a major step in the overall project that will allow TGPP to process gas and liquids from the RWE Dea and Sterling Resource-owned Breagh field."
