Wood Group (WG.L), a British oil services firm, has won a multi-million dollar contract from Total (TOT, FP.PA) for onshore maintenance services at the French oil company’s Lindsey Oil Refinery in North Killinghome, in the north-east of England.
The five-year contract, which will begin on January 1 next year, includes the option to be extended by up to two years, the Aberdeen, Scotland-based company said in a stock-exchange statement on Wednesday.
It builds on a five-year contract awarded to Wood in 2015 to deliver engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services to four of Total’s offshore assets and two onshore facilities in the UK. The two companies have been working together on projects around the globe for two decades.
“It was secured by the clear demonstration of our commitment to safety through efficient delivery of our innovative range of services to the oil and gas industry,” Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood, said. “We are strategically focused on leveraging our proven offshore track record of strong service, to broaden our downstream footprint in the UK, and this contract win achieves this.”
Wood Group earlier this month completed its acquisition of rival Amec Foster Wheeler.
