WOOD Group Engineering (North Sea) has started work on a contract in Shetland which could be worth up to £60million and which has created 140 jobs.
It is designing and installing a new gas-processing plant at oil major BP’s Sullom Voe terminal.
The 25-year-old plant is to be replaced with a slimmed-down 21st-century model.
George Brown, managing director of Wood Group Engineering (North Sea), said: “We are delighted that we have been chosen to design, procure and construct this major upgrade of new facilities at Sullom Voe, continuing our long-term relationship with BP.”
The project is due to be completed by August 2010.
About 70 construction jobs have been created in Shetland, plus a similar number of engineering and design posts in Glasgow.
Shares in Wood Group suffered with the rest of the energy service sector yesterday, however, falling 14.25p to 397.25p.
