According to a company press release, Wood has commenced a multi-million dollar contract to act as operating partner of the Scottish Area Gas Evacuation system and Beryl pipeline, on behalf of Ancala Midstream. Wood will manage the day-to-day operation of the SAGE system, which transports gas through the 323 kilometre SAGE pipeline between the northern part of the Central North Sea to the SAGE terminal at St Fergus, north of Aberdeen, where it is processed on behalf of North Sea gas producers.
The contract follows Ancala Midstream’s acquisition of Apache North Sea’s interest in the assets. Wood is also operating partner for the Central Area Transmission System (also known as CATS) under an up to 10 year, $250m contract, awarded in 2015 by CATS Management Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Antin Infrastructure Partners.
