Wood wins Rough hydrogen Feed contract

26 June 2024

UK consulting and engineering firm Wood has won the front-end engineering design (Feed) contract to redevelop Centrica Storage’s Rough gas field for hydrogen storage, it said June 26. 

The field has the potential to provide over half of the UK’s hydrogen storage requirements and the work will provide 50 new jobs. 

Wood will work on new pipelines, a new unmanned installation and onshore injection facilities at the Easington Gas Terminal as the first step in making the field hydrogen ready. 

Wood said it was proud to be a part of this innovative redevelopment project, critical to both the UK’s long-term energy security and its industrial decarbonisation commitments. 

Centrica said the project would need also a regulatory support model that would underpin gas storage investment in the UK.
