Contracts Round-Up

17.03.2008

Opus Plus Ltd. has enjoyed an extremely successful period recently - securing a clutch of contracts totalling over £400,000 in the past few months.

A number of the projects involve the innovative Mare's Tail technology, which coalesces - or pulls together - small oil droplets found in produced water, into significantly larger sizes so that the droplets can then be separated more efficiently.

Opus recently secured a contract for two Mare's Tail coalescers bound for an application offshore Cameroon in a deal worth almost £175,000.

The firm also secured a further £16,000 contract to conduct a Mare's Tail verification trial for leading energy company, Dong Energy, at the Shell Fredericia terminal in Denmark. This trial was on produced water containing high solids loading and proved to be very successful.

As well as the Mare's Tail projects, the company was awarded a contract - worth almost £30,000 - with A.S. Norske Shell to undertake a process troubleshooting study, which included modelling and testing a scaled separator for the Draugen platform, located in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

And Opus has also extended its worldwide reach recently, having been sub-contracted to carry out an in-depth fluids characterisation analysis on seven production installations in Qatar by professional engineering services firm, Worley Parsons Qatar, in a contract worth a further six figure sum.

Glen McLellan, Opus Plus' engineering manager, is particularly pleased with the company's recent success - which follows a focused marketing campaign - and says it can look forward to a bright year ahead with continued confidence.

He said: "We are thrilled to have secured these contracts, particularly as they cover a number of areas of our expertise, demonstrating the breadth of our services and the sectors we work in.

"Many of the contracts have been secured with companies based in countries across the globe - helping expand Opus Plus' international client base and ensuring the company remains at the forefront of the industry."
