Wood Group PSN has secured a contract extension from Shell in the UK to deliver midstream engineering and construction services to the St Fergus and Mossmorran gas plants.
Effective from April 2012, the £75 million, two-year contract includes an option for a further two-year extension. The award marks a continuation of the previous contract awarded to Wood Group in 2007.
The work scope will see Wood Group PSN provide project management, engineering, construction, commissioning and maintenance support as well as fabric maintenance and supply chain management services.
Robin Watson, UK managing director at Wood Group PSN said, “We have an established working relationship with Shell that spans two decades and the award of this extension demonstrates Shell’s ongoing confidence in Wood Group PSN. The contract enables us to develop our midstream onshore plants business and provide employment for over 500 people.
“Maintaining a focus on continuous improvement ensures we can support Shell’s rejuvenation project to extend the life of the plants, and deliver plant modifications and maintenance support programmes. This is evidence of the confidence our clients have in our business.”
Wood Group PSN will draw on the strength of its teams in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Runcorn to deliver this contract. Across the UK, Wood Group PSN has a workforce of almost 8,000 personnel with approximately 3,000 onshore and 5,000 offshore workers.
The Shell Northern Plants consists of St Fergus gas terminal, Mossmorran natural gas liquids plant and Braefoot Bay marine loading terminal, all of which process gas from both the UK & Norwegian sectors of the North Sea. St Fergus removes ethane, propane and liquids and delivers gas to the national grid. Mossmorran extracts natural gasoline, ethane, propane and butane. The ethane is piped to the Exxon Mobil Fife Ethylene plant, whilst the propane, butane and gasoline are shipped to market via the Braefoot Bay Marine loading terminal.
