Costain named for £84m Centrica gas project

Costain has announced it has won a contract with Centrica Energy for engineering procurement and construction services as part of Centrica Energy’s Barrow gas terminals project.

Centrica has invested £84m in the Barrow Terminals Project.

At Barrow, gas is processed from the North and South Morecambe and surrounding fields in the East Irish Sea.

The terminals project, scheduled to complete in Q4 2015, enables increased asset utilisation, provides compliance with future environmental requirements and supports field life extension within the East Irish Sea.

Costain initially provided Centrica Energy with a Front End Engineering Design review in relation to the project at the Barrow onshore terminals and will now work on site implementation.

Andrew Wyllie, chief executive of Costain, said: “The Barrow Gas Terminals provide enough gas to meet the demand for 1.5 million homes in the UK and are key to securing the nation’s future energy needs. Having previously provided Centrica Energy with front end consultancy for the terminals project, we are now delighted to build on our five-year collaboration with the company with this further contract.”
