Engineering studies that support projects from inception to operations.

We help our customers realise the full potential of their investments in a number of ways. From planning and building new facilities to reviewing, improving or decommissioning existing infrastructure, our aim is to define the most suitable logistical and commercial project parameters to enhance production, optimise performance or meet legislative and commercial requirements.

Unrivalled studies expertise

From frontier developments and immature fields, feasibility, concept selection and pre-FEED, through to modifications and ultimately late-life planning and decommissioning, our studies team supports the planning, development and optimisation of our customers’ assets. We place a relentless focus on ensuring safety in design and providing commercial clarity to ensure our technical solutions are rightsized and fit for purpose.

Wide-ranging studies expertise

Our capability is drawn from the broad engineering and technical capability across our business. This enables us to tap into resource locally and globally to quickly assemble expert teams to support our customers' study requirements from almost anywhere in the world.

Continuity through the life cycle

Our experienced technical teams are knowledgeable in planning, FEED, build and operations, enabling us to deliver the right technical initial solution before transitioning resources from our studies teams into subsequent project phases to ensure continuity through the project life cycle. We understand what it takes to see a project through from concept into execution. Our experience spans from design to start-up and through ongoing operations to ensure an effective solution is attained

Technical and commercial assessments

Wood’s proven approach in project assurance means we can facilitate, support and manage peer review sessions. We can also help you assess the risk and calculate the financial impact of your choices. With in-depth studies knowledge we provide valuable insight and effective capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX) estimates to help you make the right decision for your business.

We can also support our customers with due diligence and commercial services such as insurance, technical commercial, verification, compliance and risk assessments.

In the event of failure or a serious occurance, we provide damage inspection services, quantification and costing, root cause investigation and reinstatement strategies to ensure you have all the information available to make informed commercial decisions.

We also endeavour to get our customers back up and running by providing engineering, technical and operational readiness solutions that are commercial viable and aligned to our customers' requirements.

Late life and decommissioning

Our studies capability extends to late life, life extension, cessation of production (CoP) and decommissioning, with experience that covers all geographies and sectors.

We provide reviews for end-of-field-life operations and management through to the detailed pre-operations, maintenance and preparations required before CoP, as well as support with down-manning, dismantling, removal techniques and recycling.
