Wood Group Kenny is to provide engineering services to assess subsea capping and containment options for the UK continental shelf (UKCS).
The company was awarded the contract by Oil & Gas UK, on behalf of the UK’s Oil Spill Advisory Group (OSPRAG).
The work has been prompted by the incident in the Gulf of Mexico.
Wood Group Kenny will work with the OSPRAG Technical Review Group (TRG) and recommendations will be presented in September 2010.
These recommendations will allow OSPRAG to make an informed decision about the potential contingency options for subsea capping and containment that should be put in place in the UK.
