WOOD GROUP (JOHN) PLC: North Sea contract success continues for WGPSN

WOOD GROUP (JOHN) PLC: North Sea contract success continues for WGPSN
25 June 2013 
North Sea contract success continues for WGPSN 
Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) has extended one of its longest running projects in the 
North Sea under 
a $60 USD million (£40million GBP) one year contract extension with 
ConocoPhillips (UK) Limited. 
WGPSN will continue to provide operations and maintenance services, and 
facilities modifications 
services to ConocoPhillip's 50 offshore assets in the Southern and Central 
North Sea and the 
onshore Theddlethrope gas terminal in Lincolnshire. Effective immediately, the 
contract will be 
supported by 150 onshore and 280 offshore people in the UK. 
This is one of WGPSN's longest running and most complex projects, spread across 
50 manned and 
unmanned facilities in the North Sea. ConocoPhillips first awarded WGPSN the 
contract in 1992. 
Dave Stewart, UK managing director for WGPSN said: "We are proud to have worked 
with 
ConocoPhillips (UK) Limited for more than 20 years and continue this long-term 
relationship. 
The ConocoPhillips project is a key contract in our UK portfolio and we are 
pleased to receive 
this extension and further enhance our reputation with a major international 
company." 
This award follows a string of North Sea contract extensions chalked up by 
WGPSN in 2013 from 
CNR, TOTAL E&P UK, Teekey and Ithaca Energy. Most recently WGPSN announced our 
first life of 
field contract Ithaca Energy which will see WGPSN operate and deliver managed 
services to the 
Beatrice offshore platforms and Nigg onshore terminal until the end of their 
operating life. 
In the UK, Wood Group now employs more than 11,000 people working onshore and 
offshore.
