Oil and gas services company Wood Group has won a contract worth more than £40m to expand and upgrade a Norwegian gas processing plant.

The Aberdeen-based firm will carry out engineering modifications and upgrades to the Kollsnes facility, west of Bergen.

The contract was awarded by Statoil on behalf of plant operator Gassco.

Wood Group Mustang Norway has already started work on the project, which will last through 2017.

The scope of the contract includes front-end engineering design as well as work on updating electrical, instrumentation and control systems.

The Kollsnes plant processes natural gas from the Troll, Kvitebjorn and Visund fields in the North Sea and currently provides almost 40% of Norwegian gas deliveries.

Once modifications are complete, the Kollsnes facility will be one of the largest gas processing plants in the world, capable of processing 144.5 million cubic metres per day of gas.
