British contractor Wood Group said it has been awarded a three-year contract by vessels operator Maersk to deliver mechanical and management services for the hook-up and commissioning of the Culzean gas condensate field in the U.K. central North Sea.
At peak manning, approximately 200 new jobs will be created by the project to support the new three platform, high pressure, high temperature (HPHT) development, which is expected to begin production in 2019, Wood Group said in a statement. The three year contract is effective immediately.
“Maersk’s decision to award us this new contract to support them in this significant North Sea development reflects their confidence and assurance in our ability to deliver our broad technical solutions safely, efficiently and effectively,” said Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood Group’s Asset Life Cycle Solutions business in the Eastern region.
“We will bring our strong, global experience and expertise in the execution of hooks-ups to the project, where our focus will be working in close collaboration with Maersk towards its successful delivery.”
