Wood Group Supports MWCC’s Well Containment Training

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 9/24/2015, Location: North America

Wood Group has been awarded a contract with Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) to provide an operator training simulator; supporting training for containment in the event of a deepwater well control incident in the Gulf of Mexico.

Under the contract, the simulator will be developed by Wood Group Kenny using its proprietary software and will be located at the MWCC shore base near Corpus Christi, Texas. It will be used to train operators who will be involved in the deployment of MWCC’s well containment equipment if capture operations are required for an incident response.

Wood Group has worked with MWCC for four years, providing services including several flow assurance studies for MWCC’s cap and flow design and developing the company’s process operational procedure.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood Group Kenny, says: “Providing the technology to help train those responsible for tackling well control incidents in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico is a very important project. We will utilize our extensive experience in software and simulation to support this safety effort.

“This latest contract continues Wood Group’s relationship with MWCC. We look forward to providing our technical expertise for this initiative which aims to ensure environmental and process safety during incident response of this type.”

Wood Group Kenny proprietary software, VP Link and Virtuoso, will be used in an integrated approach to simulate both subsea and topside processes during well containment efforts.

This latest contract further builds on Wood Group’s capability in projects relating to well response. Wood Group PSN joined forces with MWCC to form an offshore reservist response team in 2013. Wood Group Mustang has also recently completed engineering services for the two MWCC modular capture vessels. Services provided included the follow on design engineering, on-site engineering, integration and testing of systems and components from multiple vendors, field engineering support, management of US regulatory review, and spares procurement.
