Wood Group to commission Big Foot project

Wood Group, the international energy services company, has been granted a multi-million dollar, three-year contract by Chevron U.S.A. Inc. to commission the Big Foot extended tension leg platform (E-TLP) in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Work will be performed by DSI, Wood Group PSN's commissioning services business.

DSI's scope of work covers the full commissioning process, from development of procedures, through inspection and testing of every operational component at the South Texas fabrication yards and offshore, to the final hand-over of systems to Chevron.

Big Foot is the eighth TLP/ETLP DSI has commissioned worldwide and is the fifth facility commissioned for Chevron, including the Jack & St. Malo semi-submersible platform in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, which DSI is currently commissioning.
