Teesside based product manufacturer and global supplier of fire, blast and heat protection systems – Mech-Tool Engineering Limited (MTE Ltd) – will provide its on-site supervision and inspection services to facilitate the launch of the Hebron platform, which is scheduled to produce first oil by the end of 2017. And this comes on the back of the company successfully completing a multi-million-dollar contract for the delivery from its UK and Korean sites. The order involved MTE supplying a range of its specialist fire and blast protection products to the offshore development located off the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. These included duplex stainless steel fire and blast walls, blast relief walls, louvres, wind walls, fire doors and windows.

Anthony Jones, Divisional Director at MTE commented: “The Hebron project has been a significant scheme for MTE and is very much a demonstration of the company’s proven ability to deliver significant projects at scale with the technical capability to consistently do this on time and on budget.” The contract – which was awarded to Mech-Tool Engineering Limited in 2013 by Worley Parsons – is valued at approximately £14.5million and, it is expected that at peak, the Hebron oilfield will pump 150,000 barrels of oil per day from its 52 well slots.
