Duty Holder / Installation Operator

We pioneered the outsourced Duty Holder model in 1997. Today, as the Duty Holder for 12 onshore and offshore assets both in the UKCS and internationally, we’re considered the expert in our field.

Our team is focused on the safe and effective management and maintenance of assets. We safely improve production and efficiency of existing operations and enable asset transfers from existing to new operators.

To achieve this, we utilise our knowledge and experience gained through operating and managing assets, underpinned by our well-honed, tried and tested processes and procedures.

We take a partnership approach and manage daily operations enabling you to focus on subsurface and reservoir activities.

We have developed for approval and then maintained Safety Cases for a number of assets and infrastructure facilities. We maintain the necessary organisational and technical competence, capacity and management systems to support the commitments made in each Safety Case, to ensure the on-going safety of operations.

We have a demonstrable track record of:

  • Due diligence and asset strategy development
  • Seamless transition management
  • Organisational transformation
  • Maximising and increasing production delivery
  • Increasing value through timely completion of major capital projects and upgrades
  • Implementing strategic supply chain synergies and efficiencies
  • Increasing economic viability to extend asset and field life
  • Industry-leading HSE performance and safety case development
  • Optimising lifting costs
  • Providing 24/7 emergency response capability through our emergency response service centre and well prepared and capable teams

In 2017 Petrofac was awarded the Energy Industries Council Award for Collaboration, in light of efforts to drive synergies in cost and efficiency by integrating logistics and people management in the Southern North Sea.
