Wood Group nets contract extension with Chevron in North Sea
- Business & Finance
Wood Group has secured an extension to continue to support Chevron Upstream Europe across four offshore assets in the North Sea.
Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) will deliver operations and maintenance services to the Alba Northern platform, Alba floating storage unit, Captain floating production, storage and offloading vessel and Captain wellhead protector platform, under the one-year contract that extends an agreement in place since 2010.
The Alba Field lies about 130 miles northeast of Aberdeen, Scotland, in the U.K. Central North Sea, in water depths of approximately 453 feet.
The Captain Field lies approximately 90 miles north-east of Aberdeen, Scotland, in the Outer Moray Firth, in water depths of roughly 346 feet.
Effective immediately, the contract retains more than 30 jobs and adds to Wood Group’s support of Chevron in the UKCS; Wood Group Kenny recently performed the subsea engineering of the trees, wellheads, controls and polymer injection flowlines to the subsea injection wells for Chevron’s Captain Enhanced Oil Recovery Project.
James Crawford, managing director of WGPSN in the UK and Africa, said: “Our firm commitment is to provide effective and efficient services, which assure the safety and performance of our client’s assets; retaining this contract with Chevron Upstream Europe is testament to this focus. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship and maintaining the excellent, high standards we have demonstrated in our service delivery.”
