James Fisher wins major offshore oil terminal deal

Apr 13 2018

James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) has been awarded a 10-year integrated marine services contract by a UK-based, international, integrated energy company, in a deal worth in excess of £50 mill.

JFMS will be responsible for the provision of a wide range of James Fisher group services to ensure safe and efficient offloading operations at an offshore terminal on the East coast of England.

JFMS will deliver offshore and subsea operations, supporting the safe arrival, connection, and departure of an estimated 110 tankers per year at the offshore terminal, including specialist diving services and buoy maintenance.

Fergus Graham, JFMS managing director, said: “We’re very proud to have been awarded this significant contract by a global energy firm. It is testament to the hard work and dedication of all involved. Our model of delivering in-house integrated services to drive cost and operational efficiencies is proven and this contract will help form the foundation for us to further develop our position in this exciting, global market place.”

As part of the contract, which starts this month, the company will also manage three vessels.

James Fisher’s project delivery team will be located at its customer’s offices, where they will help ensure safe and successful delivery of 15 mill cu m of crude oil per year to the oil refinery, which supplies almost 20% of the UK’s fuel demand.

In addition, JFMS will supply additional products and services to help support safe and effective terminal operations, as required.

Although not being able to reveal the name of the customer or the terminal, the only significant offshore discharging facility off the UK’s East Coast is the Tetney Monobuoy in the Humber estuary, which feeds into Phillips66’s Immingham refinery.
