HOUSTON – Wood Group Kenny has secured a five-year contract with Oil Spill Response (Capping) Ltd. (OSRCL) to maintain part of an emergency oil spill containment toolkit.

The multi-million dollar project will see WGK work with OSRCL to ensure that the flexible flowlines in the toolkit are continuously suitable for immediate load out. The contract includes maintenance management, recommendations for preservation, inspection and testing of all ancillary and lifting equipment, as well as the flexible flowlines stored at sites in the UK, Singapore, and Brazil.

The flowlines are critical to the containment toolkit designed for theSubsea Well Response Project (SWRP), a joint industry project managed by Shell in Norway and funded by eight of the major operating companies.

Intended for use with standard industry hardware, this equipment needs to be interfaced with a readily-available well test riser and well test surface spread on a rig or drillship. It permits the rig to be located a safe distance from the incident site.

The work will be delivered by WGK teams in Aberdeen and Newcastle in the UK; Perth, Australia; and Rio de Janeiro.
