Since 1999, we have maintained contracts with Hess in the UK and in Equatorial Guinea, and we are pleased to have extended this relationship to the US Gulf of Mexico. We will recruit new employees to service this contract and are committed to developing a skilled and talented local workforce."

Wood Group PSN employs over 5,000 people in the US, working both offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and onshore servicing the conventional oil & gas sector and shale plays.
