Wood has secured a $75 million mariner contract with Equinor
Under this a three-year agreement, Wood will be delivering operations, maintenance, modifications, and offshore services on the Mariner A platform and Mariner B floating storage unit. It will run for three years from January 2021 through to Q4 2023, with options to extend.
Craig Shanaghey, president of Wood’s operations services business in Europe and Africa, comments:
“We are delighted to extend our strong partnership with Equinor to include support for their operations at the pioneering Mariner field.
“Wood has a long-standing track record of partnering with our clients to deliver safe, reliable, and optimised operations in the UKCS, and we look forward to extending that to include Mariner by leveraging our deep operational knowledge, experience, and digital capability.
“Mariner is still in its early years of production and, with Wood’s ambition to realise a digitally-enabled future, we see excellent potential to explore new opportunities that will promote a lifetime of sustainable and responsible operations at the field.”
The Mariner field is Equinor’s first operated development in the UK North Sea. It is one of the most innovative offshore developments, supported by new digital solutions and the latest technologies, including automated drilling and digital twin solutions.
The project will be delivered by Wood’s Aberdeen-based onshore and offshore teams, with support from its global engineering community.
