Offshore lifting specialist EnerMech has secured a £6 million (US$9.5 million) contract with Apache North Sea Ltd to provide crane and maintenance services.

The Scotland-based mechanical services company has been awarded the three year contract which covers all Apache's assets in the Forties [oil] Field, based in the North Sea, and will result in the creation of at least six jobs.

"Over the last two years we have provided the same services to the majority of Apache's Forties assets, but this latest agreement means all the core-crew crane operation and maintenance staff throughout the Forties Field will be provided exclusively by EnerMech," said John Morrison, EnerMech managing director for cranes and lifting.

"We hope that as our relationship develops there will be opportunities to work with Apache on projects out of the UK. With our recent acquisitions in the UAE and further international expansion planned in Asia, we are well placed to provide our whole range of mechanical services to operators such as Apache, wherever they are working," Morrison added.
