HOUSTON – Wood Group Mustang has completed engineering services for the two Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) vessels that can be deployed in the event of a deepwater well control incident in the US Gulf of Mexico. Services provided included the follow-on design engineering, on-site engineering, integration and testing of systems and components from multiple vendors, field engineering support, and management of US regulatory review. Other work, including spares procurement, is ongoing.
In the event of a deepwater incident, if required, the modular capture vessels (MCVs) will be outfitted with modularized processing equipment before being deployed to the incident site.
“We are proud to have applied our deepwater expertise to this initiative, which will help to protect the US Gulf of Mexico,” explained Bob Lindsay, president, Offshore, for Wood Group Mustang. “Our experienced team identified and resolved challenges throughout the project that helped to accelerate availability of the vessels.”
Wood Group is currently providing commissioning services for the MCVs and has reservist personnel who will be deployed to support commissioning activities and operate the production equipment on-board should the MCVs be called into action in the event of an incident.
