Wood Group lands multi-year Australian contract

Aberdeen-headquartered Wood Group PSN has won a new multi-year contract with ConocoPhillips in Australia.

The deal will see Wood Group deliver brownfield engineering services to the Bayu-Undan field located south west of Timor-Leste and the Darwin liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant at Darwin’s Wickham Point.

Contract personnel will be based onshore in Perth and Dili, Timor-Leste. The contract also covers associated floating, storage and offloading facilities and subsea pipelines; a Wood Group Kenny team based in Perth, Western Australia will supply subsea engineering expertise.

Andrew Stewart, managing director for Wood Group PSN Australia & Asia Pacific, said: “This win is a privileged addition to our existing brownfield modifications capabilities, particularly across our growing LNG activities in Australia and Asia Pacific.

“To deliver this contract, we are delighted to be able to harness the collaborative expertise of Wood Group PSN in brownfield services and Wood Group Kenny in subsea engineering.

“Hiring and developing local personnel and supporting supply chain companies in the communities where we operate are priorities for Wood Group.

“Our commitment will be reflected in this contract, particularly in Timor-Leste where we will maximise employment opportunities for people in the region, having due regard to safety and good oil field practice.”
