Wood Group Appointed Duty Holder for FPSO Sevan Voyageur

Wood Group Engineering (North Sea) Ltd has been appointed duty holder for the (Floating Production Storage & Offloading) FPSO Sevan Voyageur by Premier Oil, the licencee for the Shelley field in the central UK North Sea.

Premier Oil's contract with Sevan Marine ASA is for 'life-of-field', meaning that the FPSO Sevan Voyageur will be on location on the Shelley field as long as production is economically viable. Wood Group Engineering (North Sea) introduced hydrocarbons on schedule to the FPSO Sevan Voyageur on August 6, 2009.

This is the second duty holder contract that Wood Group has for Sevan Marine FPSOs, following on from the FPSO Sevan Hummingbird on the Chestnut field, central North Sea, the first Sevan FPSO to be introduced into the North Sea.

"This contract extends the successful relationships Wood Group has built over a three-year period as duty holder for Sevan Marine FPSOs in the North Sea," said Alan Curran, Chief Executive of Wood Group Engineering (North Sea). "We manage a suite of duty holder roles and are committed to providing a flexible range of services in the UKCS as the basin matures."
