MInteg has been awarded its largest contract to date and will supply inspection services to a major oil and gas operator in the Southern North Sea.

The subsidiary of Aberdeen-headquartered EnerMech specialises in inspection and integrity and expects to create up to 15 new posts in Great Yarmouth to service the five-year contract.

The work scope includes the inspection of infrastructure on five manned platforms and multiple unmanned satellite platforms, deploying MInteg staff trained in working-at-height and rope access techniques.

Ross McHardy, EnerMech’s  Regional Director for Europe, said innovative working practices and having a strong local presence in Great Yarmouth were factors in securing the contract.

Mr McHardy said: “This is the largest value contract awarded to MInteg to date and it is confirmation that our philosophy of investing in local infrastructure and putting boots on the ground is an important factor when clients decide who to engage in vital work scopes.

“We opened a MInteg office in Great Yarmouth last year as a precursor to tendering for this type of project and it is already paying off. We will create a further 15 positions to service this contract and to position us for winning further work in the Southern North Sea and across the onshore sector.”

MInteg’s integrity inspection capability is attracting interest from clients who require support and innovation to address asset integrity.

Parent company EnerMech recently outlined its strategy of increasing its presence in sectors out with its traditional oil and gas base with the recent appointment of Laz Koszeghy as general manager for the eastern England region.

Great Yarmouth based Mr Koszeghy is focussed on looking at opportunities for EnerMech in the renewables, nuclear power, chemicals and industrial sectors where it believes the integrated services model it provides to the energy sector will find wider appeal.

EnerMech employs 3,500 staff across 40 locations in the UK, Norway, the Middle East, Caspian, Asia, Africa, Australia and Americas, working on large scale projects across the oil and gas, LNG, renewables, defence, power, infrastructure and petrochemicals sectors.
