Wood Group said yesterday it had landed a North Sea contract from US oil and gas company Hess worth up to £50million a year.
The deal involves the Aberdeen-based energy service business, providing operations and maintenance services to the Triton floating production vessel operating in the Bittern and Greater Guillemot area 140 miles east of the Granite City. Hess is the operator and its partners are Petro-Canada, Shell, ExxonMobil and Endeavour.
The contract also has three one-year extension options.
Alan Curran, chief executive of Wood Group’s North Sea operations, said: “Wood Group is delighted to have been re-awarded this significant offshore contract, which marks more than 10 years’ continuous service as prime contractor on Triton.
“It confirms Hess and its co-venturers’ confidence in our ability to deliver best industry practice and to maintain and improve our health, safety and environmental performance.”
Chris Wright, field operations manager for Hess, said: “Wood Group has demonstrated continual improvements in safety and environmental performance on the Triton. We look forward to working together towards the continued operational excellence of the asset.”
The Triton is operated by Hess, with all topside support services being provided by Wood Group Engineering (North Sea).
Meanwhile, seabed-to-surface engineering and construction contractor Acergy said it had been awarded a contract valued at about £31.25million by Dana Petroleum.
The deal is on the Medway development project in the Dutch sector of the North Sea and will involve the tieback of two subsea wells and associated dedicated flowlines and umbilicals from the Van Nes and Van Ghent fields to the De Ruyter platform.
Acergy said engineering would begin immediately with offshore installation due next year.
