Wood Group, the international energy services company, has been granted two contracts by Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC), the not-for-profit, independent company committed to improving capabilities for containing a deepwater well control incident in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
Wood Group companies Wood Group PSN and Mustang will provide technical support services for MWCC’s containment system to be used in the event of a deepwater well control incident in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
Wood Group PSN is helping MWCC enhance plans and procedures to maintain MWCC’s interim containment system equipment. Mustang is assisting MWCC in the analysis of drillship oil & gas processing equipment. Mustang will conduct steady state and transient modeling of subsea equipment, evaluate hydrate condition and mitigation, and develop process simulation modules.
“Our offshore resources must be produced safely and reliably. This industry-wide initiative to develop an effective, response containment system is a key component to safeguard the U.S. Gulf of Mexico,” said Bob Keiller, CEO of Wood Group PSN.
