Wood wins multi-million dollar Total contract

Aberdeen-based energy and engineering services giant Wood Group said it was awarded a new multi-million dollar contract by Total to support its Lindsey Oil Refinery located in North Killinghome, Lincolnshire.

The five-year contract is to provide onshore maintenance services and includes the option to be extended up to two years.

The contract builds on Wood’s support of Total’s assets across the globe, including its UK offshore portfolio.

In 2015, Wood secured a five-year contract to deliver engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services to four of Total’s offshore assets and two onshore facilities in the UK continental shelf; the Alywn, Dunbar, Elgin and Franklin platforms, St Fergus Gas Terminal and Shetland Gas Plant (SGP).

Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood said: “We are strategically focused on leveraging our proven offshore track record of strong service, to broaden our downstream footprint in the UK; and this contract win achieves this.

“It was secured by the clear demonstration of our commitment to safety through efficient delivery of our innovative range of services to the oil and gas industry.

“Our extensive capabilities in offshore maintenance gained from over two decades of working with Total, position us uniquely to maximise the productivity while maintaining the integrity of this significant asset.”

The new contract will commence on January 1, 2018.
