Technology and solutions

Wood Group staff has the opportunity to work on a broad range of projects from a variety of sectors within the Energy industry. We focus on building long-term relationships with our valued clients and our project teams are frequently involved from early technology evaluations and conceptual design to detailed engineering and construction management/start-up support.

Wood Group is firmly committed to thermal heavy oil technologies, including steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD), cyclic steam stimulation (CSS) and solvent assisted production (SAP). We have worked on some of the premier developments in the industry and are frequently called upon to assist our clients in evaluating new technologies. We are market leaders in the development of cost effective and standardized well pad design.

Conventional and unconventional gas projects are also a major component of our portfolios. We have worked on several major gas plants as well as various ongoing upstream programs for our clients. Our experience in this area includes coal-bed methane (CBM) developments, sour and acid gas treating, water treating, water disposal and emissions management.

Wood Group has always supported our clients in their upstream conventional oil developments, including well site tie-ins, gathering systems, and oil separation and treatment. Our teams assist clients in improving the production of their assets through enhanced oil recovery (EOR) programs including CO2, miscible, water and fire floods.

Pipeline systems, both above and below ground, are a key strength at Wood Group. Our pipeline engineering team has set several technological precedents including developing the world's first NPS 24, NPS 30 and NPS 36 above-ground steam pipelines, as well as surpassing recorded standards for buried pipeline design and operating temperatures.

Cold-weather and Arctic engineering are other specialty areas here at Wood Group. As a Canadian company, we know how to live, work, play and engineer in the snow. We have experience in many of the most innovative and ground-breaking frontier projects in the industry, both on and offshore.

Wood Group continuously strikes to improve the efficiency of the facilities we design. Our power and renewables teams have supported clients in numerous complex power and renewables projects including a greenfield biomass power plant, cogeneration systems and extensive power distribution studies.

There is no shortage of interesting and challenging work at Wood Group. Our management is dedicated to providing our staff with diversity in projects and a clear path to reaching their career goals.
