Wood Group Engineering Signs Statoil Contract
A subsidiary of Aberdeen-based John Wood Group has secured a US$1 million contract for work on a major North Sea project. Wood Group Engineering (North Sea), (WGENS) will carry out the work for Statoil ASA for pre-FEED engineering for the gas treatment works planned for the Heidrun platform in the Norwegian continental shelf.
The contract is the first of its type for WGENS in Norway and involves an engineering team working on the development of further concepts for the process and structure of a new module plus integrated brownfield elements for a new gas compression system. A team from Wood Group subsidiary Woodhill Frontier will be providing specialist health and safety skills to the project which is expected to continue until June 2006.
