Wood Group has been awarded a three year contract extending its support of Shell’s eight UKCS offshore assets. Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) will continue to deliver maintenance and construction services to the Shearwater, Gannet, Nelson, Curlew, Brent Delta, Brent Alpha, Brent Bravo and Brent Charlie installations. In addition WGPSN will provide engineering modifications to the latter three platforms.
Effective immediately, two, one year extension options are included in the contract, which retains more than 500 jobs.
This is the third contract Shell has awarded Wood Group this year. In March Wood Group PSN announced a new three year contract, with the option to be extended up to four years, to deliver industrial services to the St Fergus gas processing plant in Aberdeenshire and the Mossmorran gas processing plant and Braefoot Bay marine terminal in Fife, Scotland. In January, Wood Group Kenny commenced a three year contract providing specialist consultancy services for flexible riser integrity management prior to and during operation of Shell Australia’s Prelude Floating Liquefied Natural Gas project.
James Crawford, Wood Group PSN’s managing director for the UK and Africa said: “This contract safeguards long-term employment opportunities for our employees on these assets, and builds on Wood Group’s 40 year history working in partnership with Shell in the North Sea. Extending our long-term service provision across this broad portfolio of UKCS offshore assets reflects Shell’s assurance in our continued high standard of delivery and commitment to working collaboratively.
“We will maintain our relentless, firm focus on optimising safety and productivity, leveraging Wood Group’s breadth of expertise, capabilities and robust knowledge of these assets, as we continue our strong relationship with this key client.”
