Wood Group Wins Bechtel Contract to Supply Tengiz Project in Kazakhstan

Oilfield services firm Wood Group announced Wednesday that it has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by Bechtel to provide an automated system for Tengizchevroil's Crude Storage Capacity Project at the Tengiz Field in Kazakhstan.

The project – which consists of detailed engineering, control hardware and remote instrument enclosures – will increase capacity of the tank farm to accommodate the upgrading of the existing tank farm.

Wood Group said that the project is a continuation of its work with Tengizchevroil in the expansion and modernization of the Kazakh firm's control infrastructure.

Wood Group Mustang CEO Michele McNichol commented in a company statement:

"We are combining the expertise and capabilities of our Automation and Controls personnel in the UK, US and Argentina to design and deliver a cost-effective solution that meets TCO's needs."
