Amplus Energy Services has been awarded a multi-million-dollar contract to reevaluate the development of marginal fields in Angola.
The aim of the contract is to develop economically viable field development solutions for a major operator in Angola.
The six-month project will be managed by Amplus from its Aberdeen headquarters.
Amplus will work in partnership with TechnipFMC and Halliburton to support work on the project, while local support in Angola will be provided by Prodiaman Oil Services SA, Amplus Energy Services’ partner in country.
“We are developing an excellent reputation as a company who can turn previously uneconomic oil and gas reserves into financially viable resources,” Ian Herd, Managing Director of Amplus Energy Services, said. “The lessons learned from this latest contract award will not only be strategically key for marginal field developments in Angola, but also in the North Sea, where there are more than 200 discoveries still to be developed with several billion bbl available for recovery.
“As a mature basin, most of the UK Continental Shelf’s remaining reserves are contained within marginal fields,” Mr Herd added. “Amplus Energy Services’ ongoing North Sea Production Club initiative, which is designed to make even the smallest fields economically viable, has been pivotal in helping Amplus Energy Services secure the marginal field development study contract in Angola.”
The Amplus Versatile Production Unit (VPU) is the key to offering clients, safe, fit-for-purpose and cost-effective production facilities. The VPU can support a wide range of production capacities.
The vessel operates on dynamic positioning and is fitted with a turret buoy that can be disconnected, which gives the VPU unrivaled safety performance, operational efficiency and mobility to move field-to-field, if required.
The VPU’s ability to sit directly above the subsea production facilities reduces cost in every aspect of a marginal field development.
“This is a very significant contract award for Amplus Energy Services, and we are looking forward to providing fit-for-purpose, cost-effective solutions for marginal field developments in Angola,” Mr Herd said.
Formed in 2008 and based in Bridge of Don, Aberdeen, Amplus Energy Services aims to build a world-class fleet of VPUs that will service the needs of the oil and gas industry worldwide.
