Petrofac, Repsol Sinopec Resources UK and TechnipFMC announced the formation of an innovative industry alliance which seeks to maximise the recovery of oil and gas from the UK Continental Shelf. The partnership will work together to offer the owners of oil and gas discoveries near Repsol Sinopec’s existing North Sea infrastructure hubs an integrated, technically robust and commercially flexible solution to meet their near to mid-term development objectives.
Under the terms of the partnership, Petrofac will provide all services associated with topsides engineering and operations support, whilst TechnipFMC will deploy its iFEED front-end engineering and design solution and its integrated subsea business model, iEPCI. Repsol Sinopec will provide access to its facilities under the industry-led infrastructure code of practice. Together, the group offers decades of subsea and topsides engineering, project management and operating expertise to create an all-encompassing offering, from the well head to export route.
