Wood has secured a new US$42m (£32m) contract from international energy company Equinor on behalf of operator Gassco to provide EPCI (engineering, procurement, construction and installation) services at the Kollsnes gas processing plant in Norway.
The contract will see Wood strengthen its onshore execution capabilities in Norway with the delivery of the Kollsnes MEG Upgrade (KMU) project, which includes an extension of the fourth MEG train at the plant, following the successful execution of the associated FEED study in 2019.
The award strengthens Wood’s position as a leading contractor in the development and upgrades of critical onshore energy infrastructure, building on recently awarded modification scopes for Equinor at the Mongstad refinery.
The Kollsnes MEG Upgrade project is scheduled for completion in 2023. The Kollsnes gas plant is located in Øygarden, west of Bergen, and processes the gas from the Troll, Kvitebjørn, Visund and Fram fields. Gassco operates the Kollsnes facility and Equinor is the technical services provider.
