Wood Group has again confirmed its strong relationship that will unite them to BP as it wins two new engineering contracts related to the development of Mad Dog phase 2 project.


Following the recently signed global services agreement with BP, Wood Group was then awarded the $4.89 million contract for Subsea Engineering and Project Management Services to the Mad Dog 2 project. Engineering works include gas lift system interface design, geospatial information system support, subsea controls engineering and geotechnical engineering support.


The deepwater Mad Dog project, based in the Gulf of Mexico, is located in 4,500 feet of water some 190 miles south of New Orleans. The well has the ability to produce up to 80,000 barrels of oil and 60 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.


Mad Dog 2 is the second platform designed by Wood Group for BP in the Gulf of Mexico Mad Dog field. Samsung Heavy Industries will be contracting Wood Group to provide detailed engineering and procurement services for the topsides for BP’s Mad Dog Phase 2 floating production unit. The $80 million contract follows the December 2016 completion of Interim Agreement Period (IAP) early work, which was valued at $4.5 million.
