Wood Group PSN has been awarded a five year contract from BP worth an estimated $750million.
The contract will deliver engineering, procurement and construction services to six UKCS offshore upstream assets and the FPS (Forties Pipeline System) onshore midstream facilities in Grangemouth.
The contract win will create 150 new jobs and secure more than 700 existing positions.
WGPSN said it was the company’s largest contract win this year.
Dave Stewart, UK managing director of WGPSN said: “Wood Group has more than 40 years of experience working with BP globally and this new contract is testament to the partnership and understanding we have developed.
“Providing this combined service across upstream and midstream operations for the first time positions us well for continued excellence in delivering safe, collaborative and innovative services directed at maximizing productivity and efficiency across BP’s assets in the UK.”
WGPSN already provide engineering, procurement and construction services for six BP offshore assets – Clair, Magnus, ETAP, Andrew, Bruce, and its new Glen Lyon FPSO which is currently being constructed.
This is the first time WGPSN has secured a contract for the FPS onshore facilities.
In the UK, Wood Group now employs more than 10,000 people working onshore and offshore.
