LONDON -- ODE has won a three-year extension to its contract to support the southern North Sea operations of E.ON Ruhrgas UK.
The new deal is widened to include services to the Rita and Babbage field development, both due to come into production over the next two years.
ODE will provide operations and maintenance input during detailed design and onshore pre-commissioning as well as the development of maintenance, inspection, and integrity management schemes for the Babbage field.
Once the Babbage platform is installed, ODE will provide a full crew comprising operations, maintenance and support services (catering, medic, radio operators) to assist during commissioning and start-up for the manned phase of Babbage operations.
The scope of services in the contract includes office-based engineering support facilities such as engineering and technical services, maintenance planning, emergency response centre, warehousing, operational spares storage, and quayside access and storage.
