Wood Group Wins Brazil Platform Contract with PetroRio

UK oilfield engineer Wood Group reported Thursday that it has won a contract with PetroRio to deliver services to the Polvo A platform, which is located in the southern Campos Basin approximately 60 miles off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Integrated operations and maintenance services will be provided by Wood Group PSN under the two-year contract, which begins immediately.

Wood Group said the deal builds upon its experience supporting the Polvo field, which consists of a fixed production and drilling platform that is connected to a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO). Wood Group Kenny has held two contracts to provide integrity management support to the field, the most recent of which completed in early 2015.

Wood Group Chief Executive Robin Watson commented in a company statement:

"We look forward to beginning this new partnership with PetroRio, where our focus will be on working collaboratively to deliver safe, efficient and effective services. 

"Our experience operating in Brazil, alongside our strong history of supporting offshore assets across their life cycle in the North Sea, positions us well and we are committed to leveraging our knowledge and expertise to optimize the productivity of the Polvo A platform."
