Wood Group lands four subsea deals in Norway
Wood Group has recently won four subsea contracts with Statoil on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS).
The latest award is a study to deliver subsea field concept engineering for the Snorre expansion project located in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.
Wood Group said on Monday that this project would focus on cost efficient enhanced recovery from the Snorre reservoir, with tieback to the existing Snorre A tension leg platform and gas import from Gullfaks A. There are also options for front end engineering design (FEED), detailed design and fabrication on this contract award, the company added.
Further, on the Oseberg field development Wood Group Kenny has been awarded detailed design for two pipelines with corresponding spools and an umbilical, which will form part of the tieback from the future unmanned wellhead (UWP) platform to the Oseberg field centre.
The company added that Wood Group Kenny also provided FEED support on the Utgard field development, in the North Sea, to support engineering on the pipeline system that will tieback the planned subsea template to the Sleipner T platform and performed lifetime extension studies to the pipeline system in the Gullfaks field.
Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group Kenny said: “Norway remains a key market for Wood Group Kenny and winning this work with Statoil underlines our position there.”
MacDonald added: “The four latest contracts awards cover the whole project lifecycle in pipeline engineering from concept, FEED, detailed design and life time extension, utilising our broad expertise in this area.”
Trond Grytten, operations director of Wood Group Kenny in Norway added: “Winning these four Statoil contracts is testament to our hard work and adaptability; underlining Wood Group Kenny’s capacity and capability to take on larger subsea projects in the Norwegian Continental Shelf.”
