Wood, the global consulting and engineering company, continues to expand its operations in the Southern North Sea with the award of a new operations and maintenance contract with Shell UK (SNS) and Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij (NAM).

The three-year contract, which comes with two one-year options to extend, includes the provision of manpower to support operations and maintenance, while assessing ways to drive down costs and extend production life across Shell UK (SNS) and NAM onshore and offshore assets.

To support the successful delivery of this contract and to propel growth in this part of the UK, Wood will establish a new, regional base in the Great Yarmouth area where it will leverage its broader operations and decarbonisation expertise to unlock sustainable energy solutions in the Southern North Sea and East Anglia area.

Craig Shanaghey, President of Wood’s Operations business in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “We are delighted to have secured this contract with our new client, Shell UK (SNS) and NAM, which offers an exciting opportunity to leverage our breadth of experience to maintain and enhance the performance of its assets.

“We look forward to working with Shell UK (SNS) and NAM to support highly efficient and optimised operations, while ensuring security of essential energy supply from across their Southern North Sea assets.”

“Wood is committed to the Southern North Sea region and this contract award further positions our business for growth as we focus on expanding and broadening our delivery in the region.”

The contract will be delivered by around 120 Wood employees across the offshore and onshore assets including the Clipper and Leman offshore assets, Bacton Gas Terminal, Kroonborg and Kasteelborg vessels and the Seafox4 barge campaign. The assets are located in the UK and Netherlands sectors of the Southern North Sea basin.
