Wood Group wins £60 million Shell Scots gas contract

The Wood Group has secured a two year, £60 million contract extension from Shell 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).

Wood Group employs around 500 people under this contract and provides project management, engineering, construction, commissioning, maintenance support and supply chain management services. Wood Group will also provide fabric maintenance services to the Shell plants, as part of the new contract.

Dave Stewart, Wood Group UK Managing Director, said: “We have been working with Shell for more than 20 years 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 won by Wood Group over the past 12 months from North Sea operators, including CNR, TOTAL E&P UK, Teekey, Ithaca Energy, Nexen, ConocoPhillips and Dana.

The international energy services company now employs more than 12,000 people working onshore and offshore in the UK.
