Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) has secured a two year contract extension from Shell UK to deliver integrated services to two gas plants in Scotland; the St. Fergus Gas Terminal and Fife Natural Gas Liquids Plant (which includes the Braefoot Bay Marine Terminal).
Effective April 2014, the award marks the continuation of a previous contract awarded in 2007.
WGPSN employs around 500 people under this contract and provides project management, engineering, construction, commissioning, maintenance support and supply chain management services. Since the acquisition of Pyeroy Group Limited (“Pyeroy”) in July 2013, WGPSN will also be providing fabric maintenance services to the Shell plants, as part of the new contract.
Dave Stewart, UK managing director of WGPSN said: “We have been working with Shell for more than two decades and we are delighted to secure this major piece of work. This is the first contract where we have built our new fabric maintenance capability into the work scope.”
This award is the eighth North Sea contract extension chalked up by WGPSN in the previous 12 months, following awards from CNR, TOTAL E&P UK, Teekey, Ithaca Energy, Nexen, ConocoPhillips and Dana.
In the UK, Wood Group now employs more than 12,000 people working onshore and offshore.
