Flexible flowlines which Wood Group will maintain as part of the contract with OSRCL
Wood Group Kenny (WGK) has secured a five year contract with Oil Spill Response (Capping) Ltd (OSRCL) to provide the maintenance support for a key part of a containment toolkit that would be used to control hydrocarbon release in the event of a subsea well control incident.
The multi-million dollar project will see WGK work with OSRCL to ensure that the flexible flowlines included in the toolkit are continuously in a condition suitable for immediate load out if mobilised by subscribing oil and gas operators. This will include maintenance management, recommendations for preservation, inspection and testing of all ancillary and lifting equipment, as well as the flexible flowlines, stored at sites in the UK, Singapore and Brazil.
Wood Group Kenny CEO, Bob MacDonald, said: “This project is of vital importance to the industry as subsea well control and oil spill containment is always high on the safety agenda and key to incident response. When an operator is faced with a situation which could lead to a significant hydrocarbon release, this system has to be ready to be deployed rapidly with the assurance that it will be fit for purpose.”
