Wood Group lands Brazil contract

Wood Group has secured a new contract in Brazil to deliver services to the Polvo A platform, approximately 100 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

Integrated operations and maintenance services will be provided by Wood Group PSN under the two year contract with PetroRio, which is effective immediately.

Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group, said: “We look forward to beginning this new partnership with PetroRio, where our focus will be on working collaboratively to deliver safe, efficient and effective services.

“Our experience operating in Brazil, alongside our strong history of supporting offshore assets across their life cycle in the North Sea, positions us well and we are committed to leveraging our knowledge and expertise to optimise the productivity of the Polvo A platform.”

The contract builds on Wood Group’s experience supporting the Polvo field, which consists of a fixed production and drilling platform connected to a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).

Wood Group Kenny has held two contracts to provide integrity management support to the field, the most recent of which completed in early 2015.
