Aberdeen-headquartered Unity, Europe’s largest provider of well integrity technology, services, and engineering solutions, has been awarded a three-year contract extension, by a UK oil and gas operator, to continue their work on three northern North Sea platforms. The contract, worth an annual six figure sum, has two additional one-year extension options.

Unity provides well integrity, wellhead maintenance and associated support services for the three assets. This includes surface wellhead and Xmas tree integrity services, plus the supply of personnel, equipment and technology, including Unity’s range of retrofittable QV wellhead parts. Unity will also support the client’s abandonment and decommissioning work on two of the platforms using their knowledge of the wellheads and associated infrastructure.

Gary Smart, CEO at Unity said: “Unity’s flexible and adaptable approach will continue to support our client’s requirements as it moves forward into a phase of decommissioning with its assets. Wellhead decommissioning is a natural extension to our production integrity and maintenance service, and our experience of all types of surface well equipment ensures we have the expertise to add value to the process.

“We hold contracts with leading operators to provide services on over one thousand wells and have built a successful track record of decommissioning support work in the UKCS and Europe. Projects have included well inspection, plug setting, isolation verification, onsite machining and the safe removal of Xmas trees and tubing hangers. Unity’s technology solutions, such as our Surface Intervention System, may also be used to enhance efficiency.”

This contract award comes on the back of similar recent business wins at Unity, spanning both the oil and gas and utility sectors.
