Wood Group secures contract for Total's Lindsey oil refinery in UK

EBR Staff Writer Published 12 October 2017

France’s Total has awarded a contract to Wood Group to support the Lindsey oil refinery located in North Killinghome, Lincolnshire, UK.

Under the five-year contract, Wood will provide onshore maintenance services. The contract, which will commence on 1 January 2018, includes the option to be extended up to two years.

Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Wood Group CEO Robin Watson said: “We are strategically focused on leveraging our proven offshore track record of strong service, to broaden our downstream footprint in the UK; and this contract win achieves this.

“It was secured by the clear demonstration of our commitment to safety through efficient delivery of our innovative range of services to the oil and gas industry.

“Our extensive capabilities in offshore maintenance gained from over two decades of working with Total, position us uniquely to maximize the productivity while maintaining the integrity of this significant asset.”

The Lindsay refinery is equipped with highly advanced refining and conversion processes to process nearly ten million tons of crude a year. It has capacity to process 45 different kinds of crude.

With a processing capacity of 200,000bpd, the refinery can also produce 35 finished products.

In 2015, Wood Group received a five-year contract to deliver engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services to four of Total’s offshore assets and two onshore facilities in the UK continental shelf.

The four assets include the Alywn, Dunbar, Elgin and Franklin platforms as well as St Fergus Gas Terminal and Shetland Gas Plant (SGP).
