Wood Group has been awarded a contract by Premier Oil to deliver front end engineering design (FEED) to the Tolmount offshore field development in the Southern North Sea.
Effective immediately, Wood Group will provide topsides, jacket, pipeline, flow assurance and subsea engineering expertise for Premier’s Tolmount offshore assets and export pipeline, which ties into the Dimlington onshore terminal in Humberside.
Robin Watson, Wood Group’s chief executive, says, “This award demonstrates the integrated solutions that we are uniquely positioned to provide; bringing facility engineering, specialist technical solutions and our operational reputation to front end engineering design.”
“We are committed to delivering a full systems engineering approach from the subsea wellhead, through the offshore facilities, export pipeline and to the onshore terminal, complete with end-to-end flow assurance. This contract builds upon our existing relationship with Premier Oil and we look forward to leveraging our global expertise to support this key UKCS project,” adds Watson.
This contract adds to Wood Group’s support of Premier Oil in the UKCS. The company was recently awarded a USD 50 million contract to deliver topside operations and maintenance services to the Balmoral floating production vessel in the Central North Sea, and the Solan installation, West of Shetland.
