ENERGY services giant Wood Group yesterday secured its sixth major North Sea contract extension so far this year.
The Aberdeen-based group’s Production Services Network (PSN) division has won a three-year contract from Nexen
Petroleum to deliver maintenance, operations and technical support services to the Buzzard and Scott platforms.
The deal, which secures 280 jobs, also covers services to Nexen’s Golden Eagle area development, which is expected to come on stream in 2015. PSN’s contract win follows five other recent North Sea deal extensions with ConocoPhillips, CNR, Ithaca, Teekey and Total.
News of the work came a day after Wood Group bought Forth Bridge contracter Pyeroy.
