Wood Group supports Subsea Well Response Project

The engineering company Wood Group Kenny, has provided support to the Subsea Well Response Project (SWRP), which is a joint industry project to further improve the prevention of, as well as response to, subsea well-control incidents.
Shell contracted the Wood Group Kenny, which has been a part of the project since 2012 and will remain so until the end of this year. It has supplied the engineering design of the subsea equipment, design verification of well testing and topside equipment and development of Subsea Well Containment Guidelines for the further engineering study (FES) phase of the project. It also provided the design of the topsides process system as well as the surface equipment package management.
The SWRP is a non-profit joint initiative between nine major oil and gas companies. It was set up in 2011 as recommended by the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (OGP). After several recent oil spill incidents, OGP created a dedicated Global Industry Response Group (GIRG) to review and improve the industry’s capacity to prevent and respond to subsea well-control incidents. Steve Wayman, Wood Group Kenny’s CEO, commented, “This is an important and unique project that we are very proud to support. Nine major oil companies have demonstrated their commitment to discover further technological advances, increase safety and minimize the environmental impact in the event of a serious subsea well control incident; it’s an honour for Wood Group to be involved in this very important industry project.”
