Orders with a volume of over €200 million: Bilfinger Berger boosts offshore business in the North Sea

Yet another success for Bilfinger Berger in the oil and gas industry: in the United Kingdom the Group has signed framework contracts valued at over €200 million for the maintenance and repair of offshore platforms in the North Sea. The comprehensive agreements with renowned companies, which also include project coordination and the management of planned plant shutdowns, cover a period of three to five years.

“With an annual volume of approximately €280 million, Bilfinger Berger is market leader in industrial service for the oil and gas sector in the North Sea”, comments Thomas Töpfer, who is responsible for industrial services on the Executive Board of Bilfinger Berger SE. “Our clients include all major international oil and gas companies.” The Group maintains a range of oil production and processing plants as well as refineries and gas liquification facilities in both Europe and North America.

Just recently, Bilfinger Berger Industrial Services won an order for a €130 million project in the Texas oil and gas business. There, the company will assume responsibility for the design, manufacture and installation of five pumping stations and tank storage units for a new pipeline to develop Eagle Ford Shale, an important oil and gas field.
