Wood Group wins $84m Equinor contract

Aberdeen-based global engineering group Wood plc said it has won an $84 million contract for Equinor’s Breidablikk subsea development in Norway.

Wood has been awarded the contract to provide EPCI (engineering, procurement, construction, and installation) services.

Wood will deliver all topside modifications at Equinor’s Grane installation in preparation for the tie-back of the Breidablikk subsea development.

The majority of the preparatory work will be carried out by Wood’s teams in Sandefjord and Stavanger in Norway.

Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions business in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, comments: “We are pleased to support the development of the Breidablikk tie-in project, which aligns with our ambition to support our clients with realising the full potential of their project portfolios.

“We have built a strong working relationship with Equinor over more than two decades and we look forward to continuing our track record as a key contributor to this impressive project.”

Lars Fredrik Bakke, Wood’s senior vice president in Norway, adds: “Our involvement in this project allows us to leverage the maintenance, modifications, and operational expertise within our Norway organisation to ensure the successful integration of this subsea tie-back.

“Winning this contract strengthens our position as a key partner in extending production from existing infrastructure, both in Norway and globally.”
