Written by  OE Staff Monday, 22 May 2017 03:07

Wood Group has secured a technical support services (TSS) contract with Sakhalin Energy Investment Company, an operator of Sakhalin-2, which includes Russia's first offshore gas production platform and liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant.

The contract extends Wood's Group's relationship with Sakhalin Energy; the company has been providing engineering and construction support, including studies and modifications, to offshore and onshore assets on Sakhalin Island in the Russian Federation for more than a decade.

The new contract adds brownfield drilling upgrade services to the capabilities Wood Group provides across the following assets: 

  • Piltun- Astokhskoye-A offshore platform (Molikpaq)
  • Piltun- Astokhskoye-B offshore platform (PA-B)
  • Lunskoye-A offshore platform (LUN-A)
  • Onshore processing facilities including Booster stations 1 and 2
  • Liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant
  • Oil export terminal (OET) 
  • Tanker loading unit (TLU)

Effective immediately, the five-year contract, with two, one-year extension options will be delivered by Wood Group's engineering team based in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on Sakhalin Island, and supported by the company's offices in Australia, Norway, China and the UK.

A major feature of the TSS contract will be a new working relationship between Wood Group and a Russian Design Institute (RDI), Gasproektengineering AOJSC (GPE). GPE is a Gazprom company with more than 1000 employees in the Russian Federation and headquarters in Voronezh, about 470km south of Moscow. Over the term of the contract GPE will play a significant and growing role in supporting service delivery, working closely with Wood Group across the range and scope of services and asset base.
