OGN Secures EnQuest Producer Gig

OGN Group, the North East-England offshore engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) specialist, has secured a multi-million pound contract with independent UK oil and gas development and production company EnQuest, which will lead to the creation of 600 new project jobs at its Tyneside facility.

OGN will provide its specialist fabrication services to undertake finishing and commissioning works on the EnQuest Producer, a 249m long Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The EnQuest Producer, which was previously Bluewater’s Uisge Gorm FPSO, recently arrived at OGN’s Hadrian Yard, Wallsend. Ahead of its arrival, OGN completed dredging in the River Tyne at its quayside to accommodate the 53,176 gross tonne FPSO.

Upon completion of the works, the vessel will be deployed to the Alma/Galia field in the North Sea, which is a redevelopment of the UK’s first producing field, Argyll.

In addition to creating new jobs at OGN, the project will provide considerable benefit for OGN’s supply chain. Through engagement with new and existing suppliers, predominantly from North East England, it is expected the project will support, in the region of 250 supply chain jobs.
