Press Group Awarded

Major Platform Contracts

Worley Engineering has been awarded a contract for the con- ceptual design and detailed engi- neering of three new platforms to be installed on the Rough natural gas field off the Humber.

British Gas plans to turn the field into a storage facility with gas being taken from the national gas transmission system during periods of low demand in sum- mer, pumped into the field reser- voir and withdrawn in large quan- tities during time of peak demand for gas during the winter.

This scheme is part of an ap- proximately $9.4 billion expendi- ture program being undertaken over a five-year period by British

Gas — the very large part of which is aimed at improving availability of gas at times of peak demand. Worley Engineer- ing's contract will involve 180,- 000 man hours and apart from detailed design will include prep- aration of bid packages for equip- ment as well as backup services through to and including com- missioning of the three platforms —two drilling and one production.

Based in London and in Hous- ton, Texas, Worley Engineering is the front end engineering wing of the William Press group with contracts throughout the U.K.,

Europe, Australia, the United

States and the Middle East.

From their corporate offices in the United States, Worley Engi- neering Inc. has also announced two contracts worth about $10.81 million for Shell in Nigeria.

The contracts were received through Scallop Materials Serv- ices New York, for the supply of two gas processing plants to Shell

Petroleum Development Company


Worley is to provide engineer- ing, procurement and construc- tion supervision services as well as the supply of equipment for the two separate but basically identical gas processing plants.

Scallop Materials Services is a division of Scallop Corporation, a member company of the Royal
