Wood wins three-year gas transportation contract from Norway’s Gassco

Wood will support the transportation of natural gas to terminals across the UK and Europe from the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

Norwegian state-owned operator Gassco has awarded a contract to engineering firm Wood to support secure gas transportation from the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS) to the UK and European countries.

Under the three-year contract, Wood will work with Gassco to modernise the gas receiving facilities.

The company will be responsible for providing engineering, procurement and construction management services for gas receiving terminals in Easington, UK; Zeebrügge, Belgium; Dunkerque, France; Dornum, Germany; and Emden, Germany.

In total, these terminals have an annual receiving capacity of around 100 billion cubic metres (bcm) of natural gas from the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

Wood Europe, Middle East and Africa operations president Craig Shanaghey said: “We are delighted to grow our relationship with Gassco and expand our operational footprint in Europe with this award which further propels our geographical and portfolio diversification.

“With complete alignment to Gassco’s vision of securing energy supply, we will renovate and increase the efficiency of their onshore terminals, helping to ensure safe and efficient gas receipt across the UK and Europe and, in turn, providing critical energy security as we transition to a net-zero future.”

Gassco operates an 8,300km network of pipelines for transporting Norwegian gas to continental Europe and the UK.

Wood Norway operations vice-president Lars Fredrik Bakke said: “We will bring our extensive experience in operating, maintaining, and upgrading critical energy infrastructure to ensure Gassco’s operations remain resilient.

“Our Norwegian team, with the support of our UK and global experts, will support the delivery of this contract, in turn securing local employment and strengthening Wood’s position as a leading engineering and operations partner for the energy industry.”
