Heerema Hartlepool Ltd receives contract to construct the 9,500 ton Buzzard Utility Deck for EnCana.

Heerema has been awarded the contract by EnCana (U.K.) Limited to construct the 9,500 ton Utility Deck which forms part of the Buzzard Development Project. The Utility Deck will be constructed at the Heerema facilities in Hartlepool.

Heerema Hartlepool Director Mr. Brian Dixon stated: "We are absolutely delighted to be awarded this prestigious contract, as it is the first large integrated deck to be awarded to a UK contractor for over 5 years.

"It is not only a reward for our skilled and loyal work force, but also a terrific accomplishment for Heerema to be awarded this contract against strong European competition. It will ensure continued employment for our excellent workforce after the completion of the Clair Drilling Facility in early 2004.

"As well as our reputation for completing and delivering a high quality product on time, we believe that the excellent working relationships between the Heerema management, the work force and the GMB union have also played an important part in Heerema being selected by EnCana for this important contract".

Construction will begin in early 2004, with completion and delivery scheduled for the second quarter of 2006. The contract will employ approximately 700 personnel at peak periods and will benefit many local companies and the Hartlepool community.
