AMEC wins MSA for BP oil project

Engineering and project-management company AMEC, as part of the AMEC Tekfen Azfen (ATA) consortium, has been awarded a five-year Master Services Agreement (MSA) by energy company BP Azerbaijan.

The five-year agreement covers the provision of project management, engineering services, construction management, and commissioning and completions for BP’s oil and gas projects in Azerbaijan, including the Chirag Oil Project, West Chirag project − valued at $340m (£226m) − and, in the future, the Shah Deniz 2 project.

The first tranche of work under the agreement is for the project start-up and associated yard-preparation works for an 18,000-tonne topsides facility for the Chirag project.
