Wood is targeting more decommissioning work in the Asia Pacific region as the global consulting and engineering company looks to build on its historic experience on Shell’s Brent Charlie and Brent Delta assets in the UK North Sea and on projects in the Gulf of Mexico, and the experience soon to be gained offshore Australia.

The federal government has awarded Wood the role of “owner’s team”, with responsibility for overseeing the first decommissioning phase of the Northern Endeavour floating production, storage and offloading vessel in the Timor Sea.
