A major contract has been signed between ARCO British Limited and SLP Engineering Limited for SLP to design, supply, construct, hook up and commission ARCO's Trent and Tyne fields 165km off the East Anglian coast.

The £41 million contract will be undertaken as an alliance between ARCO and SLP. Granherne Limited who are SLP's engineering partner for the development are supplying engineering services to the project.

The Trent and Tyne developments will provide gas through the Bacton Terminal and the facilities comprise; on Trent a 927 tonne Jacket and 1750 tonne Deck together with 338 tonnes of piles and a 10 tonne subsea template. Tyne includes a 306 tonne Jacket, 264 tonnes of piles, 750 tonne Deck and a 10 tonne subsea template.

Granherne will be undertaking the design of the process systems at Woking with SLP designing the two jackets at their Uxbridge office. SLP's Teesside yard will fabricate the Jackets and the Lowestoft yard will be responsible for the design and fabrication of the decks.

Work commences immediately and first gas is due on 1 October 1996. The contract will provide work for approximately 250 personnel at the Lowestoft yard, 150 at the Teesside yard and 100 engineering staff between Lowestoft, Woking and Uxbridge offices.

David Edwards, SLP's Managing Director stated:
"This is a significant award to SLP and we are pleased to be working again with ARCO British Limited. The contract for Trent and Tyne comes at a period of change in the North Sea with many fields being considered marginal from an Oil Company development point of view. SLP's solution adopted by our client is to provide an economic exploitation of the reserves. This approach represents an important element of SLP's future business and forms part of a portfolio of solutions available for similar projects from SLP and its partners.

The Trent and Tyne project is breaking new ground with ARCO working closely with the contractor to determine the best solution to the fields development. SLP are delighted to be at the forefront of this approach for exploiting further oil and gas from the North Sea."
