The contract, awarded to Wood Group Mustang (WGM) by Singapore-based peer SMOE, will see the company provide detailed engineering and design for the offshore plant that will be operated by Det norske.

It will require staff at a peak period of around 200 people and will be performed mainly through WGM's London office.
