Wood has been awarded a contract extension for engineering, construction and maintenance services on TAQA’s North Sea assets.

Effective immediately, the 18-month extension builds on a previous agreement covering the Cormorant Alpha, Eider, Tern, North Cormorant and subsequently Harding offshore assets, and will see Wood’s activities continue to support these installations.

The work will be delivered by Wood’s Aberdeen-based operations and engineering teams, with construction and maintenance operatives working offshore.

Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions business in Europe, Africa, Asia & Australia, comments, “We are delighted to continue our long-standing relationship with TAQA having first partnered with them to support these North Sea assets over a decade ago.”

“Wood has a wealth of experience in safely maintaining offshore installations across the UK North Sea, helping to maintain operational excellence, extend field life and maximise economic recovery,” Stewart adds.
