SANDEFJORD, Norway – Equinor has awarded Wood a $13-million EPCI service contract for the Vigdis boosting station increased oil recovery project in the Norwegian North Sea.

Wood will implement topsides modifications to facilitate tie-in of subsea equipment to the Snorre A and Snorre B platforms, both of which process oil from the Vigdis subsea field.

On completion of the project, production from the Vigdis field will increase by almost 11 MMbbl.

Wood’s office in Sandefjord is managing the program - previously the company performed front-end engineering design and a concept study.

It already provides maintenance, modification and operations services to both Snorre A and B under a framework agreement with Equinor.
