Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) has secured its sixth major North Sea contract extension this year. The latest award comes in the form of a three-year contract from Nexen Petroleum UK to deliver operations, maintenance and technical support services to the Scott and Buzzard platforms.
The contract also covers services to Nexen’s Golden Eagle area development that is expected to come on-stream in 2015. The award follows five other recent North Sea contract extensions from CNR, TOTAL E&P UK, Teekey, Ithaca Energy and ConocoPhillips (UK) Limited.
Dave Stewart, UK managing director of WGPSN, said, “We work collaboratively with Nexen to ensure production efficiency, equipment reliability, cost control and outstanding safety performance on both the Scott and Buzzard platforms. We are delighted to have secured an extension to this significant contract. Combined with our involvement in the hook up and commissioning of the Golden Eagle development project, this award underlines the strength of our relationship with Nexen.”
WGPSN has a long history with Nexen, having previously delivered hook-up and commissioning services for the Buzzard platform enhancement project in the North Sea.
The company was also awarded the contract for the offshore hook-up and commissioning for Nexen’s Golden Eagle Area Development (GEAD) in December 2012, while Wood Group ODL was awarded the contract to deliver documentation and training systems for the same project.
