Nexen re-engages Wood Group for UK North Sea platform support

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UK – Nexen has awarded Wood Group a new five-year contract in the UK North Sea valued at $150 million.

This is an extension of a program in place since April 2010, under which Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) provides operations, maintenance, and technical support to the Buzzard, Scott, and Golden Eagle platforms in the central UK sector.

The deal secures more than 190 jobs, and is the contractor’s third extension this year – the others were a two-year contract from TAQA to support its five UK offshore assets, and from Chevron Upstream Europe covering four sets of offshore facilities.
