Wood Group wins Apache contract extension

Wood Group chief executive Robin Watson

Aberdeen-based oil and gas services giant Wood Group said it has been awarded an extension to its master service agreement (MSA) contract with Apache Corporation in the North Sea.

Under the deal, Wood Group will continue to deliver subsea engineering and consultancy services for Apache’s routine operation and maintenance works as well as detailed engineering for future subsea developments across its entire North Sea portfolio — the Forties and Beryl areas, Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) pipeline and the onshore SAGE facility at St Fergus.

The contract includes two one-year extension options.

Wood Group chief executive Robin Watson said: “The extension of this contract to provide our technical solutions support across Apache’s North Sea portfolio is testament to our strong, collaborative working relationship with Apache and their confidence in our high standard of service delivery.”
