Wood Group Kenny has extensive experience in joint industry project work, having been involved in 27 JIPs over the last 18 years.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group Kenny, commented in a company statement:

“Using our expertise in the subsea arena to inform and improve operations, these JIPs will help to steer and support the future direction of the ever-evolving subsea sector. Spearheading these critical projects is fundamental to providing solutions to our customers and we look forward to working with the participants to deliver successful JIPs.”

Kieran Kavanagh, technology development director at Wood Group Kenny, said in a WGK statement:

“Our success in JIPs is testament to our innovative approach to addressing industry problems. These new JIPs are focused on subsea integrity, competency and improved design practice; all significant challenges as we seek to reduce risk and life-of-field costs in the subsea industry.”
