Wood Group PSN has announced a £6.69million contract win for Shell off the coast of Western Australia.
It is to build a computerised maintenance management system for the oil company’s Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant.
The contract will be delivered by teams in Perth, Australia, and Aberdeen.
Matt Gavin, regional director for Wood Group PSN Australia, said yesterday: “We are thrilled to be involved in such a groundbreaking project. This is an iconic engineering development centred on the largest floating, manmade structure ever built.
“The award of this contract demonstrates our ability to draw on the strength of our teams from across the world to deliver excellence in maintenance, system build and asset-integrity management.”
Prelude is said to be the world’s first floating LNG development.
Wood Group PSN said the revolutionary technology would allow Shell to access offshore gas fields that would otherwise be too costly or difficult to develop.
