Amplus Energy wins first major contract in Angola

17499822082 7715a0083f zAberdeen-based floating production solutions specialist Amplus Energy Services has won a multi-million-dollar contract to re-evaluate the development of marginal fields in Angola

The contract aims to develop economically viable field development solutions for a major operator in Angola.

Amplus will manage the six-month project from its Aberdeen headquarters.

The company will work in partnership with TechnipFMC and Halliburton to support the work on the project, while the company's in-country partner Prodiaman Oil Services SA will provide local support in Angola.

Ian Herd, managing director of Amplus Energy Services, said, “We are developing an excellent reputation as a company who can turn previously uneconomic oil and gas reserves into financially viable resources.

“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 barrels of oil available for recovery.

“As a mature basin, most of the UK Continental Shelf’s remaining reserves are contained within marginal fields. 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 vital for providing customers with safe, purpose-fit and extremely cost-effective production facilities. The VPU can support a wide range of production capabilities.

The vessel operates on dynamic positioning (DP) and is equipped with a disconnectable turret buoy, which gives the VPU unrivalled 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 marginal field development, the company stated.

“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,” he concluded.
