Oil & gas services firm John Wood Group has entered into a new “multi-million dollar” operating partner contract in the North Sea.
Under the new agreement, Wood will manage the day-to-day operation of the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation (SAGE) system, which transports gas through a 323km pipeline between the northern part of the Central North Sea to a terminal north of Aberdeen, where it is processed on behalf of North Sea gas producers.
The contract closely follows Ancala Midstream’s recent acquisition of Apache North Sea’s interest in the assets.
“We are delighted to be working with Ancala Midstream on these major pieces of infrastructure. This contract strengthens our operating partner portfolio in the UKCS and our commitment is to leverage our broad capabilities, differentiated expertise and innovative solutions to deliver safely and efficiently,” said Robin Watson, Wood chief executive.
