Wood has secured a contract to carry out brownfield modifications on Equinor’s under-development Martin Linge offshore installation on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).

The contract was awarded under an existing framework signed in 2016. The scope of works includes maintenance, overhauling and modification work on the facility, which was installed in July 2018. Wood’s team based in Stavanger will execute the project works.

Wood Norway senior vice-president Lars Fredrik Bakke said: “We look forward to working on the Martin Linge development, one of the most advanced installations on the NCS which will be powered and operated remotely from an onshore control centre.

“Our continued success in delivering milestone projects on the NCS highlights Wood’s decades of experience working offshore on a range of facilities and our ability to draw upon our global pool of technical experts in engineering and modifications.”

Martin Linge is slated to come on stream next year when the recovered gas will flow through a new pipeline to an existing pipeline that goes to St Fergus, Scotland.

Located around 42km west of Oseberg, Martin Linge is an oil and gas discovery situated at a water depth of 115m.

Equinor operates the field with a 70% stake, with Petoro (30%) as the only partner.
