WOOD Group will deliver operations and maintenance services to the Polvo A platform in the southern Campos basin as part of a recently awarded contract by PetroRio.

Integrated operations and maintenance services will be provided by Wood Group PSN under the two year contract, which is effective immediately, Wood Group said in a January announcement.

Campos basin is located about 100 kilometres off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The contract builds on Wood Group’s experience supporting the Polvo field, which consists of a fixed production and drilling platform connected to a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).

Wood Group Kenny has held two contracts to provide integrity management support to the field, the most recent of which completed in early 2015.

Wood Group chief executive Robin Watson said he was pleased with the contract award and is looking forward to working with PetroRio.

“Our experience operating in Brazil, alongside our strong history of supporting offshore assets across their life cycle in the North Sea, positions us well and we are committed to leveraging our knowledge and expertise to optimise the productivity of the Polvo A platform,” he said.
