Wood Group gets worldwide subsea contract from BP

BP has contracted Wood Group to undertake subsea engineering services at its projects in the Gulf of Mexico, UK and  Norwegian continental shelves and offshore Azerbaijan.

No specific value was disclosed for the five-year contract, but UK-headquartered Wood Group described it as “multi-million-dollar”.

Wood Group Kenny (WGK) will handle the programme, project and integrity management and operational  support for the subsea projects under the contract, which is effective immediately.

“Wood Group has over 40 years of experience working with BP,” said Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group Kenny, in a statement.

“We look forward to continuing  our close partnership with this long-term client on this project, which will  see us provide operational support for many of the assets we helped to design.”

In February, Massy Wood Group, a joint-venture company between Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) and the energy division of Massy Holdings Limited, commenced a five-year contract for BP to provide services to BP’s 13 upstream offshore  facilities and two onshore assets in Trinidad & Tobago. The contract has a potential value of up to $250m.
