Wood Group has been awarded a five-year contract in the UK sector of the North Sea by Nexen, valued at $150 million.

Extending a contract in place since April 2010, Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) will continue to deliver operations, maintenance and technical support across Nexen’s North Sea offshore assets; the Buzzard, Scott and Golden Eagle platforms.

According to Wood Group, more than 190 jobs are retained under the contract, which is effective immediately and builds on Wood Group’s 12 year relationship with Nexen in the UKCS.

James Crawford, WGPSN’s managing director in the UK and Africa said: “Working in partnership with Nexen we have proactively added value, maximized productivity and enhanced efficiency and safety across these assets. The long-term renewal of this contract demonstrates the success of our relationship and we look forward to leveraging our expertise and strong knowledge of the platforms, towards continued excellence in the service we provide to this key client.”

This is the third contract extension WGPSN has secured in the UKCS this year.

In April, the company announced a two-year contract with TAQA, extending its provision of engineering, construction and maintenance services to five UKCS offshore assets.

In February, WGPSN secured an extension to continue to support Chevron Upstream Europe across four offshore assets in the North Sea.
