GDF SUEZ E&P UK awards engineering giant design work on Cygnus gas field

AMEC has been awarded a £50m contract for engineering work on the undeveloped Cygnus gas field in the North Sea.

The engineering consultant said the work awarded by GDF SUEZ E&P UK would create 150 new jobs.

The Front End Engineering Design contract includes work on the ‘option to proceed’ into a detailed design and procurement phase.

John Pearson, managing director of AMEC’s Europe and West Africa business said: “Nearly four decades experience and proven delivery in the North Sea will help to deliver Cygnus, which is not only a new field development, but GDF SUEZ E&P’s first major operated North Sea field.”

The work is scheduled for completion in 2012.
