The HUC support contract for the four Cygnus platforms follows on from the FEED (front end engineering design) and detail design work executed by AMEC from its London offices.

This continued work on the Cygnus development further cements the positive working relationship between AMEC and GDF SUEZ and its partners, Centrica and Bayerngas.

This latest phase, with first gas scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015, will maintain 140 jobs at peak and will be delivered by AMEC’s Aberdeen offshore North Sea team, including qedi, AMEC’s completions and commissioning specialists.

The work will be part of a series of major platform installations, including the full spectrum of commissioning and completions support, reflecting the deepening of AMEC’s relationship with GDF SUEZ E&P UK.

AMEC Europe brownfield and asset management managing director Alan Johnstone said, "We are delighted to be able to support GDF SUEZ E&P UK deliver this strategically important development."
