Engineering and consulting giant Wood has struck a £95 million deal to provide a range of services on Spirit Energy’s mature Morecambe Bay gas fields.

Wood, of Aberdeen, will help the operator extend field life, lower costs and reduce the carbon intensity of its assets in the East Irish East and at the Barrow gas terminal.

The five-year contract will create work for about 130 people across the offshore assets and onshore terminal and a small support team in Aberdeen.

Craig Shanaghey, Wood’s president of operations for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “I am delighted to be able to announce our new partnership with Spirit Energy which will see Wood apply our decades of experience in intelligent operations, maintenance and integrity solutions to deliver a sustainable next chapter for the field.

“Our shared ambition is to leverage the greatest value from the Morecambe Hub in its late life phase, by focusing on driving down operational costs and creating opportunities to extend field life.”

John Cowie, Morecambe Hub asset director at Spirit Energy, said: “The Morecambe Hub has produced gas for the UK for more than 30 years, and remains a key asset in our portfolio as we continue to maximise economic recovery from the area.

“There is still more we can do to extend Morecambe’s field life while reducing its emissions and contribute to the UK’s net-zero targets, and we look forward to working with Wood on both of these goals.”
