In addition, Talisman Energy (UK) has also extended Wood Group PSN’s existing Engineering & Modifications Services contract, worth £50 million per year, until the end of 2012.

“We are delighted that Talisman has chosen to continue its long term relationship with Wood Group PSN. This decision reflects the company’s successful delivery of Talisman’s requirements over the last eight years,” said Bob Keiller, CEO of Wood Group PSN. “We will build on this success by supporting Talisman in delivering its Operational Excellence strategy to assure both our long term futures in the North Sea”.

Wood Group has approximately 1,400 personnel working under the contracts with Talisman, with 1,100 based on Talisman offshore assets and onshore sites and 300 based onshore in Aberdeen and Glasgow.

Wood Group PSN’s expertise is providing highly competent maintenance and operations personnel and the award of a contract of this duration demonstrates the confidence we have in Wood Group PSN’s proven capabilities

Coupled with our recent decision to transfer 170 offshore supervisors from Wood Group PSN to Talisman, which significantly strengthens the site leadership team, this contract will help deliver our long-term strategic goal of safe, efficient production over the next ten years.”
