Wood Group has been awarded a multi-million dollar, three-year contract by Chevron (NYSE:CVX) to commission the Big Foot extended tension leg platform (E-TLP) in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Work will be performed by DSI, Wood Group's commissioning services business. 

DSI's scope of work covers the full commissioning process, from development of procedures, through inspection and testing of every operational component at the South Texas fabrication yards and offshore, to the final hand-over of systems to Chevron. 

Big Foot is the eighth TLP/ETLP DSI has commissioned worldwide and is the fifth facility commissioned for Chevron, including the Jack & St. Malo semi-submersible platform in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, which DSI is currently commissioning. 

"Commissioning is critical to the safe start-up of a production facility, proving the integrity and reliability of all safety and operating systems," stated Trey Lambert, president of DSI. "Chevron can rely on DSI to provide safe, consistent and quality commissioning services across its projects."
