Wood Group has been awarded a contract by Statoil – on behalf of Gasso – for engineering modifications and upgrades to its Kollsnes process plant, in Norway.
The NOK500 million contract includes procurement and management assistance and front-end engineering design, as well as updates to the electrical, instrumental and control systems.
The Kollsnes plant processes natural gas from fields in the North Sea and currently provides nearly 40% of Norwegian gas deliveries.
Work on the project started last month, and is expected to run through to 2017. Once the plant is completed, it will be one of the largest gas processing plants in the world, with capacity to process 144.5 million cubic meters of gas per day.
