Wood Group has been awarded a contract by Edinburgh-registered Premier Oil to deliver a front end engineering design for the Tolmount offshore field development in the southern North Sea.  

Effective immediately, Wood Group will provide topsides, jacket, pipeline, flow assurance and subsea engineering expertise for Tolmount, which ties into the Dimlington onshore terminal in Humberside.

Robin Watson, Wood Group chief executive, said: “We are committed to delivering a full systems engineering approach from the subsea wellhead, through the offshore facilities, export pipeline and to the onshore  terminal, complete with end-to-end flow assurance.

“This contract builds upon our existing relationship with Premier Oil and we look forward to leveraging our global expertise to support this key project.”

Wood Group also recently won a $50 million contract to deliver topside operations and maintenance services to the Balmoral floating production vessel in the central North Sea, and Premier’s Solan installation west of Shetland.
