Wood Group lands $400m framework agreement with Statoil

Wood Group has been awarded a main contractor framework agreement to deliver maintenance and modification services to four Statoil installations on the Norwegian continental shelf.

The agreement, worth around $400m, is for a period of six years with the option of a four-year extension. Wood Group Mustang Norway will provide the support required for the Snorre A&B, Grane and Visund facilities which is expected to create approximately 250 jobs.

Wood Group Mustang Norway has also been awarded a ten-year competition agreement which will enable the company to tender for individual projects for Statoil in Norway.

“This is a breakthrough for Wood Group on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and we look forward to building on our existing relationship with Statoil. The work secured will call for a considerable build-up of the offices in Bergen and Stavanger and we will undergo a recruitment campaign to enhance our key talent and bring the best expertise to the projects,” said Otto Søberg, president of Wood Group Mustang Norway.
