Scotland-based Wood Group has won two new contracts to conduct concept and feasibility studies at Statoil’s Norwegian North Sea assets. 

Under the contract, which is effective immediately, Wood Group will deliver a topside concept study assessing the tie-in of Total’s Garantiana field development to Statoil’s Gullfaks B and Visund facilities. 

In addition, the company will carry out a feasibility study for Statoil’s Tampen oil pipeline including subsea pipelines and risers and topside modifications. 

Wood Group chief executive Robin Watson said: "The award of these two new contracts demonstrates the strong relationship we have developed with Statoil, which spans more than two decades and stretches across their global portfolio of assets. 

"The agreement was signed to support the lifecycles of Statoil’s offshore and onshore facilities."

"It’s notable our support on the Tampen Oil pipeline project is leveraging our topside and subsea competence and knowledge, demonstrating Statoil’s clear confidence in our ability to harness our solutions across a diverse project scope.” 

Statoil has awarded these two contracts under the evergreen master services agreement, which was executed between the two companies in May last year. The agreement was signed to support the lifecycles of Statoil’s offshore and onshore facilities. 

Works under the contract will be delivered by Wood Group’s offices in Norway.

Last month, Wood group signed a ten-year global agreement with Hess to provide engineering, project management, construction, commissioning, operations and maintenance, integrity management, subsea, and decommissioning services.
