John Wood Group, the Aberdeen-based engineering and consulting giant, said it has secured a two-year contract extension with Equinor UK Limited to support energy production at the Mariner field in the UK North Sea.
Wood will continue to provide operations, maintenance, modifications and offshore services on the Mariner A platform and Mariner B floating storage unit, as well as delivering front-end concept and feasibility studies, detailed design, construction and commissioning services for future project developments.
In addition, Equinor continues to utilise Wood’s digital capabilities and experience to optimise efficiency across Mariner’s operations.
Ellis Renforth, Wood’s President of Operations in Europe, Middle East and Africa said: “We are proud to further strengthen our relationship with Equinor through this contract extension. As a trusted delivery partner, we will continue to provide operations, maintenance and engineering support, critical to energy security.
”The contract extension is testament to the quality of delivery by our teams both onshore and offshore, applying innovative, sustainable ways of working, utilising our enhanced digital capabilities to ensure safe, reliable and consistent operations across the Mariner field.”
Wood has a longstanding partnership with Equinor, supporting global projects, including long-term contracts in Norway and Brazil as well as Equinor’s renewable energy business in the UK.
The Mariner field is located approximately 150km east of the Shetland Islands in the Northern North Sea and is expected to produce more than 300 million barrels of oil over the next 30 years, contributing towards reliable energy supply and security.
The contract will continue to be delivered by Wood’s team in Aberdeen and offshore North Sea.
