BP Extends Wood Group's North Sea Workscope

BP has given the go ahead for Wood Group Engineering to undertake additional engineering, procurement and construction services on BP's Lomond platform. The extended workscope for the Lomond asset, located in BP's Central Graben development in the UK sector of the Central North Sea, is scheduled for completion in May 2005.

Wood Group Engineering (North Sea) won the contract following successful completion of the front-end engineering in August 2003, and the initiation of early detailed design and long-lead procurement services. The work comprises the Lomond Mid Life Compression Project, which is designed to extend the life of the Lomond reservoir by lowering the minimum pressure at which gas can be produced.

We are pleased to have won this significant contract, which utilizes the skills and experience gained from the previous North Everest platform project," said Hamish Ritchie, Manager of the BP contract for Wood Group Engineering (North Sea).
