Chevron Extends UK North Sea Contract with WGPSN
Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) has secured a one year contract extension from Chevron North Sea Limited to deliver engineering and construction services to its assets in the Alba and Captain fields in the UK North Sea.
Effective immediately, the extension marks the continuation of a previous contract awarded to WGPSN in 2009. Under this contract WGPSN employs around 110 people offshore and onshore, from offices in Aberdeen and Glasgow.
Engineering and construction services will cover the Alba Northern platform and a floating storage unit in the Alba field, and two platforms and a floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) in the Captain field.
Dave Stewart, UK managing director of WGPSN said: “This is an important extension from a key client in our UK business. It cements our relationship with Chevron which dates back to 1993, when we were first awarded the topsides support services contract for the production facilities in the Alba, Captain and Erskine fields.”
This award is the ninth North Sea contract extension chalked up by WGPSN in the previous 12 months, following awards from CNR, TOTAL E&P UK, Teekay, Ithaca Energy, Nexen, ConocoPhillips, Dana and Shell UK.
In the UK, Wood Group now employs more than 12,000 people working onshore and offshore.
