Atkins wins new framework agreement for riser analysis

riser analysisAtkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, has received a five-year framework contract by BP global wells organisation for global riser analysis services

Under the framework agreement, the four main scopes of work include:

· Marine riser and wellhead systems analysis

· Analysis for wellhead fatigue monitoring

· Completion landing string analysis

· Open water work-over riser analysis

Martin Grant, executive vice-president for engineering and consulting for oil and gas at SNC-Lavalin, commented, “We are looking forward to continuing our excellent working relationship with BP globally bringing together the capabilities from SNC-Lavalin and Atkins.”

This is the first framework awarded to the combined Atkins and SNC-Lavalin business by BP. It further facilitates a collaborative environment and builds on the implementation of the five-year framework global agreement for engineering and consulting services for operations and three-year framework global agreement for conceptual engineering services to projects already held by Atkins.

SNC-Lavalin acquired WS Atkins plc on 3 July 2017.

The new framework agreement recognises Atkins and SNC-Lavalin’s 20 years of technical experience and a proven track record of delivering riser analysis services on projects around the world, including offshore Gulf of Mexico, the North Sea, Azerbaijan, West Africa, Western Australia and the Falkland Islands.

The partnership will focus on the riser itself but also the overall, integrated coupled system, global performance and hydrodynamics and the impact of the integrated system on individual components or vice-versa.
