U.K.’s Wood Group said it was awarded a new contract by China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) to support their Lingshui 17-2 gas development in the Qiongdongnan basin of the South China Sea.
Subsea and flow assurance services will be provided under the contract, which is effective immediately and will be supported by Wood Group’s offices in Perth, Australia and London, the engineering and services company said.
Wood Group will also deliver an independent review for the development’s subsea production system design and a special study and design for its gas export pipeline.
Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group’s Specialist Technical Solutions business, said: “We are ideally positioned to support this significant Asia Pacific development with our global deepwater expertise and broad subsea capabilities.
“We will leverage our vast experience providing robust and innovative solutions to tackle challenges related to deepwater activity. Our commitment is to delivering high quality, safe and efficient services and we look forward to working in close collaboration with CNOOC to enhance their vision for their first deepwater project.”
