Sparrows Group awarded five-year contract from Premier Oil


ABERDEEN -- Sparrows Group has secured a new five-year contract with Premier Oil for the provision of crane operations and maintenance across two of its North Sea assets.

The scope of work, awarded to Sparrows for the first time, will see the company provide offshore crane operations and maintenance, including major component change out and overhaul, to the Balmoral floating production vessel (FPV) and the Solan installation.

The contract encompasses all cranes and associated mechanical, electrical, hydraulic and instrumentation on the fields. Sparrows will also be responsible for all inspection, condition monitoring, management of maintenance strategies and full engineering scopes.

Onshore support and repairs will be conducted from Sparrows global headquarters in Aberdeen.

Solan field, located 96 km northwest of the Orkney Islands, achieved first oil in April 2016 and can store up to 300,000 bbl of crude oil.

The Balmoral FPV is positioned 200 km northeast of Aberdeen at a water depth of 143 m.

The contract comes just weeks after Sparrows announced that it had been awarded a three-year year crane management services contract with Chyrsaor for the three operating assets it took ownership of from Shell in November.
