Wood Group has secured a contract worth over NOK500m (£41m) to expand and upgrade the Kollsnes gas processing plant in Norway.

The contract was awarded by Statoil on behalf of plant operator Gassco.

Under the deal, Wood Group will carry out engineering modifications and upgrades to the facility, located west of Bergen.

The scope of the contract includes front-end engineering design, and work on updating electrical, instrumentation and control systems.

"Wood Group Mustang’s onshore engineering expertise, combined with our knowledge and experience with Statoil is enabling us to provide a competitive technical solution for the Kollsnes plant."

Wood Group Mustang Norway has already begun work on the project, which will last until 2017.

The Kollsnes plant processes natural gas from the Troll, Kvitebjørn and Visund fields in the North Sea, and currently provides about 40% of Norwegian gas deliveries.

The planned modifications will expand its capacity to manage increased production from the Kvitebjørn platform.

After completion of modifications, the facility will have the capacity to process 144.5 million cubic metres of gas per day.

Gassled operates and owns the plant, with Statoil providing technical services.

Wood Group Mustang Norway president Otto Søberg said: "Wood Group Mustang’s onshore engineering expertise, combined with our knowledge and experience with Statoil is enabling us to provide a competitive technical solution for the Kollsnes plant."

Wood Group Mustang provides project management, construction management, engineering and procurement services to the offshore, onshore, oil sands, pipeline, refining and several other sectors.
