Petrofac first established its presence in Aberdeen in 2002 through acquisition and since then we’ve gone on to augment our strong track record of operating in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).
In 2016 we brought together our service lines within one consolidated and integrated business unit called Engineering & Production Services (EPS) West.
EPS West provides life of asset service capabilities supporting International, Independent and New Entrant clients to optimise value from their oil and gas assets - from project start-up all the way through to the late life and decommissioning phases.
We focus on solutions to minimise risk, enhance integrity, reduce costs and unlock more value; essential for all our clients operating in this mature basin.
Our integrated services include:
Through Scotvalve Services, a Petrofac owned company, we provide quality repair and precision testing of valves and critical pressure control equipment from a state-of-the-art facility seven miles from Aberdeen Airport.
Through SGC Metering, a system integrator, we provide a range of flow computer services - from conceptual design through to support, training and performance improvement.
While low oil prices continue to pose a challenge, we’re optimistic about the future of the UKCS and participate in many committees and forums to encourage the industry to think differently to create increased value and a sustainable future for the basin:
We’re very active in the local community, supporting educational and enterprising endeavours that make a difference to our employees and the people who live close to our operations.
Since 1998, we've enjoyed a successful education-industry partnership with Kincorth Academy, providing pupils with careers guidance and STEM subject support, as well as week-long placements with hands-on experience of oil and gas activities.
We’ve partnered with the Energy Institute Young Professionals Network (EIYPN) to support the Network’s annual events calendar, aimed at building industry links. As the primary sponsor, Petrofac provides an opportunity for young professionals to network whilst developing personally and professionally. Members of our senior management team regularly sit on event panel discussions.
Thinking differently is key to the sustainability of the UKCS. We’re absolutely committed to this so that we can deliver the greatest value for our clients and drive efficiency improvements across the industry. Through the experience and knowledge held within our Aberdeen-based teams, we will continue to have a positive impact on the future of the UKCS.
