Significant long-term Shell contract secured by BIS Inspection
Aberdeen-based BIS Inspection has secured a multi-million pound contract with oil and gas operator Shell EPE (Exploration & Production Europe).
The company – a division of leading industrial services provider, BIS Salamis (M&I) Ltd – has been awarded the contract to provide NDT and Inspection Engineering services across Shell's northern operations.
The contract covers eight offshore installations, St Fergus, Mossmorran and Braefoot Bay onshore gas plants, and the Shell offices in Aberdeen.
While the contract is initially for a five-year period, there is an option to extend the agreement for a further two years.
BIS Inspection expects to expand its workforce by recruiting 40 new personnel, following the award of the contract, with more than 20 technicians and 20 onshore staff set to be appointed during the next two months.
The agreement marks a continuation of the excellent ongoing relationship between Shell EPE and BIS Salamis in the UK which has seen the company enjoy an unbroken 15 year record for supplying services to the operator.
BIS Inspection Manager, Ian Drummond, says he is delighted to be building on the excellent relationship with Shell and believes the new contract will enable the continuation of the successful growth strategy being pursued by the company.
He said: "To secure a contract of this magnitude is a significant achievement and a real milestone for BIS Inspection and positions us as one of the leading providers of NDT and inspection engineering services within the UK's oil and gas industry.
"BIS Inspection is extremely proud of its growing reputation and excellent safety record. We will continue to work closely with Shell to maintain our exceptional service levels by keeping in place the skilled personnel already working on their assets and recruiting the best professionals available to enable us to manage the additional work contained within this new contract."
