Wood Group has been awarded a five year contract by Nexen, valued at $150 million, to deliver operations, maintenance and technical support across the company’s North Sea offshore assets.
Extending a contract in place since April 2010, Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) will service the Buzzard, Scott and Golden Eagle platforms. More than 190 jobs will be retained under the contract, which is effective immediately and “builds on Wood Group’s 12 year relationship with Nexen in the UK Continental Shelf,” according to a Wood Group statement.
WGPSN’s Managing Director in the UK and Africa, James Crawford, said in a company statement:
“Working in partnership with Nexen we have proactively added value, maximized productivity and enhanced efficiency and safety across these assets. The long-term renewal of this contract demonstrates the success of our relationship and we look forward to leveraging our expertise and strong knowledge of the platforms, towards continued excellence in the service we provide to this key client.”
This is the third contract extension WGPSN has secured in the UKCS this year. In April, the company announced a two year contract with TAQA, extending its provision of engineering, construction and maintenance services to five UKCS offshore assets. In February WGPSN secured an extension to continue to support Chevron Upstream Europe across four offshore assets in the North Sea.
