Focus on cost-cutting helps Wood Group win new N. Sea contract

Wood Group logoAberdeen-based Wood Group PSN has won a new five-year contract from EnQuest to provide engineering, design, construction, procurement and commissioning services to the Thistle, Heather and Northern Producer offshore assets in the North Sea.

The terms of the contract reflect EnQuest’s ongoing focus on reducing costs and improving the efficiency of its North Sea offshore operations.
