The GR Engineering Services Ltd (ASX: GNG) share price has surged higher in morning trade, up 3.51% at $1.18.

This follows the company’s announcement of a new Australian government contract for its wholly owned subsidiary, Upstream Production Solutions Pty Ltd (Upstream PS).

What’s driving the GR Engineering share price today?

In today’s ASX release, GR Engineering reported that Upstream PS has secured a 1-year contract with the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER).

In the contract, the company will provide operations, maintenance and project services to the Northern Endeavor floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility and its associated infrastructure.

Upstream PS has provided maintenance and operations services to the FPSO since February this year. That contract is due to expire on 31 December, in the leadup to the FPSO’s disconnection and removal..

The company expects approximately $130 million in revenue from the new contract, based on the budget for core operation and maintenance services and the planned pre-disconnection project works involved.

Commenting on the new contract, GR Engineering managing director Geoff Jones said:

We are pleased to continue working with DISER and the relevant regulatory bodies to safely manage and maintain the FPSO and execute the required pre-disconnect preparation activities to support a safe removal of the FPSO in the future.
