Wood Group awarded Woodside engineering support contract

UK-headquartered Wood Group has been awarded a contract by Australia’s Woodside to provide engineering support for the subsea pipeline system for phase two of the Greater Western Flank (GWF-2) project offshore Western Australia.

The 15-month contract is effective immediately and valued at $6m.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group’s Specialist Technical Solutions, commented: “Securing the engineering support contract for GWF-2 builds on the technical solutions and global expertise Wood Group has already brought to this complex development. We have supported the project since the concept development phase and will leverage our experience and comprehensive understanding of it, as we continue to focus on the safe and efficient execution of our services.”

Wood Group is already providing engineering, procurement and construction management services to Woodside’s brownfield projects team, including the provision of modification and refurbishment services.
