Abu Dhabi has awarded UK-based Amec a $124m contract for project management consultancy (PMC) services on the execution phase of a major offshore oil field development.
The five-year contract was awarded by Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco), which is carrying out the phase-two, full-field development of the offshore Umm al-Lulu field.
The scope of Amecs contract includes the project management of the schemes engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) work.
The Umm al-Lulu offshore super-complex will comprise six bridge-linked platforms including gathering, separation, gas treatment and water disposal facilities, utilities and accommodation modules.
The work is being delivered from the UAE and is expected to create 100 additional jobs for Amec in Abu Dhabi, Amec said in a statement.
In 2011, Amec was awarded contracts for PMC services on the first phase of Adma-Opcos Umm al-Lulu and Nasr field developments.
