Wood To Provide FEED Services for Equinor in Norway

Wood secured two new contracts from Equinor for onshore and offshore facilities in Norway.

In the first of the new contracts, Wood will deliver front-end engineering design (FEED) services for brownfield modifications to the Grane offshore facility. The scope of the FEED includes all topsides modifications required on the facility to prepare for the subsea tieback from the GRAND (Grane Area Northern Development) project.

The contract was awarded following concept study work for the GRAND project and includes an option for the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation phase.

The second new contract is for the Kollsnes MEG Upgrade (KMU) project where Equinor is technical service provider on behalf of Gassco. Wood will perform the FEED for modifications to the Kollsnes gas processing plant in Øygarden, west of Bergen, and will be delivered by the company's local team in Norway, supported by systems engineers in the UK.

The new award at the Kollsnes gas plant increases Wood's onshore portfolio in Norway where the company is also designing the upgrade to naphtha hydrotreating and storage systems at Equinor's Mongstad refinery, as part of an existing maintenance, modification, and operations framework agreement worth approximately $400 million.

The FEED for GRAND is scheduled for completion by end of 2019, and the Kollnes process plant FEED will be completed in mid-winter 2020.
