Wood Group wins Statoil North Sea work

Wood Group has landed two new contracts from Statoil for its North Sea assets.

The service firm, which is the process of ironing out a takeover of Amec Foster Wheeler, will deliver concept and feasibility studies for Statoil’s Norwegian North Sea assets.

Wood Group is responsible for delivering a topside concept study evaluating the tie in of Total’s Garantiana field development to Statoil’s Gullfaks B and Visund facilities.

In addition, Wood Group will provide a feasibility study for Statoil’s Tampen oil pipeline, covering subsea pipelines and risers and topside modifications.

Robin Watson, Wood Group’s chief executive, said: “The award of these two new contracts demonstrates the strong relationship we have developed with Statoil, which spans more than two decades and stretches across their global portfolio of assets.

“We will utilise our broad depth of capabilities, Norwegian North Sea experience and robust technical expertise in concept and feasibility studies to support their successful delivery.

“It’s notable our support on the Tampen Oil pipeline project is leveraging our topside and subsea competence and knowledge, demonstrating Statoil’s clear confidence in our ability to harness our solutions across a diverse project scope. Our focus will be delivering safe, efficient and innovative services that support and enhance these facilities.”

The two contracts are awarded under an evergreen master services agreement secured with Statoil in May 2016, to support the life cycles of their offshore and onshore facilities. They will be delivered by Wood Group’s offices in Norway.
