Wood to Deliver Modifications for Equinor’s Martin Linge Development
Wood has been appointed to deliver brownfield modifications services to Equinor’s Martin Linge offshore installation on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Awarded under an existing framework agreed in 2016, Wood is the main contractor for maintenance, repair and modifications on the facility which was installed in July 2018.
Martin Linge is scheduled to come on stream in 2020 and the gas will flow through a new pipeline connecting to the field via existing infrastructure to St Fergus in Scotland.
The project will be delivered by Wood’s team based in Stavanger, and further strengthens the company’s foothold in the Norwegian market.
Lars Fredrik Bakke, Wood’s senior vice president in Norway, comments: “We look forward to working on the Martin Linge development – one of the most advanced installations on the NCS which will be powered and operated remotely from an onshore control centre.
“Our continued success in delivering milestone projects on the NCS highlights Wood’s decades of experience working offshore on a range of facilities and our ability to draw upon our global pool of technical experts in engineering and modifications.”
Earlier this year, Wood was awarded two new contracts from Equinor to deliver brownfield modifications to the Grane offshore facility and FEED for modifications to the Kollsnes gas processing plant in Øygarden, west of Bergen.
