Aberdeen's Wood hails $350 million contract with energy giant BP

Wood, the Aberdeen-headquartered global energy and engineering services group, has been awarded a key contract by BP worth some $350 million (£330m).

The five-year, multi-region, reimbursable contract will see Wood support energy production through the provision of “asset repairs, modifications and enhancements”. It covers BP’s offshore installations.

The agreement renews Wood’s existing contracts in the regions to support the energy giant as the industry grapples with the dual challenges of energy security and transition.
