London-based Amec has won a four-year contract from BP Exploration (Caspian Sea) to provide engineering and modification services, initially for the Chirag-1 production platform 120 km southeast of Baku. The contract terms will extend to five further offshore installations as these are progressively brought onstream. Amec has supported BP in the Azeri sector of the Caspian since 1997, most recently for the Chirag early oil facility.

In the UK southern North Sea, Amec is to perform topsides modifications on the two Audrey field platforms for Venture Production. These are associated with the subsea development of the Annabel field in block 48/10a. The work will include modifying existing piping systems and providing new gas metering facilities on Audrey A. On Audrey B, Amec will install a new subsea control system, with associated monitoring and chemical injection functions. It will also manage the controls interface with the Lincolnshire Offshore Gas Gathering System, which will receive Annabel's production.
