Wood awarded North Sea decarbonisation project for TotalEnergies


ABERDEEN – 1 May 2024 – Wood, a global leader in consulting and engineering, has been awarded a new decarbonisation contract by TotalEnergies (TEPUK) to support flare gas recovery in the North Sea.

​The 23-month contract, part of the Elgin-Franklin Flare Gas Recovery System Project, follows Wood’s successful completion of a field study and front-end engineering design (FEED) and includes the coordination of operations, procurement and design aspects for the Elgin asset.

​Led by Wood’s team in Aberdeen, this contract will see the company create 40 new positions on and offshore.

​This project forms part of TEPUK’s Carbon Footprint Reduction roadmap and will redirect gas that would have previously been flared through a new compressor system offshore to be treated and then reused.  

​Martin Simmonite, Senior Vice President for UK Operations at Wood, said: “We are delighted to work with TEPUK, supporting the delivery of this decarbonisation initiative and providing end-to-end project lifecycle solutions. Wood is committed to delivering sustainable solutions that contribute to a low carbon future and our teams are well positioned to support TEPUK as they execute their ambitious action plan to reduce emissions across their operations.”

​Wood has worked with TotalEnergies for over 20 years, supporting a variety of projects and contracts globally.

​The Elgin-Franklin field is a series of high pressure, high temperature gas reservoirs, located in the Central North Sea. The field is operated by TotalEnergies, with ENI, Harbour Energy, Ithaca Energy, NEO Energy and ONE-Dyas holding non-operated interests.
