Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) extended one of its longest running projects in the North Sea under a $60 million (GBP 40 million) one year contract extension with ConocoPhillips (UK) Limited.
WGPSN will continue to provide operations and maintenance services, and facilities modifications services to ConocoPhillip’s 50 offshore assets in the Southern and Central North Sea and the onshore Theddlethrope gas terminal in Lincolnshire. Effective immediately, the contract will be supported by 150 onshore and 280 offshore staff in the United Kingdom (UK).
This is one of WGPSN’s longest running and most complex projects, spread across 50 manned and unmanned facilities in the North Sea. ConocoPhillips first awarded WGPSN the contract in 1992.
Dave Stewart, UK managing director for WGPSN said: “We are proud to have worked with ConocoPhillips (UK) Limited for more than 20 years and continue this long-term relationship. The ConocoPhillips project is a key contract in our UK portfolio and we are pleased to receive this extension and further enhance our reputation with a major international company.”
This award follows a string of North Sea contract extensions chalked up by WGPSN in 2013 from CNR, Total E&P UK, Teekey and Ithaca Energy. Most recently WGPSN announced our first life of field contract with Ithaca Energy which will see WGPSN operate and deliver managed services to the Beatrice offshore platforms and Nigg onshore terminal until the end of their operating life.
In the UK, Wood Group now employs more than 11,000 people working onshore and offshore.
