Wood Group has won a $50 million contract with Premier Oil to deliver topside operations and maintenance services to the Balmoral floating production vessel in the central North Sea and on the Solan platform west of Shetland.

The two year contract – with three possible 12-month extensions – safeguards more than 150 jobs and extends Wood Group’s support of Edinburgh-registered Premier Oil in the North Sea.

Dave Stewart, Head of Wood Group’s Asset Life Cycle business, said: “We have consistently and successfully assured the management of safety and integrity and applied our innovation and technical expertise to maximise uptime and production, whilst also reducing field lift costs.

“This will be our continued focus with Premier Oil.”
