Statoil ASA has let a contract to John Wood Group PLC to deliver front-end engineering design for a low-sulfur gasoline project at subsidiary Statoil Refining Norway AS’s 9.3 million-tonne/year in Mongstad, Norway, near Bergen.

As part of the new contract—which was secured under an existing framework agreement signed with Statoil in 2015—Wood will provide design, engineering, and analysis for modifications to reduce sulfur content in gasoline produced at the refinery, the service provider said.

Wood’s engineering teams also will focus on the design to upgrade the refinery’s naphtha hydrotreating and storage systems to meet new fuel specifications on sulfur content of gasoline.

While it did not confirm a specific value of the latest contract, Wood said it will begin work on the project effective immediately.
