Gulf of Mexico subsea

Scotland-based oil services company Wood Group has won a contract to provide engineering services to BP‘s existing subsea infrastructure.

Under the five-year contract, Wood Group will offer services for infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico, UK and Norwegian continental shelves, as well as offshore Azerbaijan.

Wood Group Kenny (WGK) will also offer its support by providing its services to a range of subsea projects.

WGK will deliver programme, project and integrity management, as well as operational support as part of the contract that adds to the company’s work with BP globally.

The contract, which is effective immediately, will be delivered from WGK&’s offices located in Aberdeen, London, Norway, Houston and Baku.

WGK CEO Bob MacDonald said: "This significant contract demonstrates our unique independent model and our ability to deliver a complete portfolio of subsea services across global projects.

"WGK will deliver operational support as part of the contract that adds to the company’s work with BP globally."

"We look forward to continuing our close partnership with this long-term client on this project, which will see us provide operational support for many of the assets we helped to design."

In February, Massy Wood Group secured a contract worth $250m to provide services to BP’s 13 upstream offshore facilities, and two onshore assets in Trinidad and Tobago.

Massy Wood Group is jointly owned by Wood Group PSN and the energy division of Massy Holdings.

Wood Group has around $7bn sales and operating in more than 50 countries.
