Wood Group was awarded with 10-year conceptual engineering contracts by US oil giant Chevron. The master services agreement (MSA) envisage delivery of conceptual engineering, pre-front-end engineering design (pre-FEED), FEED, detailed design and procurement services in multiple locations of Chevron’s assets and developments. The first stage of the contracts is for pre-FEED work on the two semi-submersible rigs on the Tigris and Anchor developments in the US Gulf of Mexico. The platforms will operate on water depth between 4,000 and 5,000 feet, approximately 140 nautical miles off Louisiana.
“The MSA and Gulf of Mexico contracts continue our strong relationship with Chevron. We have more than 30 years’ experience in deepwater developments for a broad range of customers, from concept to closure”, said the CEO of Wood Group, Robin Watson. “The amalgamation of this knowledge and experience will be brought to bear for Chevron for an optimal solution”, added he.
The companies Chevron and Wood Group share a long-standing relationship, with several projects in the Gulf of Mexico.
