Willbros Group, an energy infrastructure contractor serving the oil, gas and power industries, has won various contracts worth a combined value of $151M.

The firm’s Utility Transmission & Distribution unit won a $37M contract to build a 177km transmission line for a new client. Construction will begin immediately and is expected to be wrapped up by the end of 2017.

The Construction & Maintenance unit in Canada bagged a $56M three-year extension on an existing master service agreement contract to continue maintenance work in the Alberta oil sands region.

The unit also won a $13M contract to build a 48-inch, 8km pipeline. Construction work has already commenced, and completion is expected in the third quarter of 2017.

Meanwhile, a unit of the firm’s Oil & Gas segment secured a written notification of award, estimated at $45M, to build a pipeline in the Northeast. Contract signing is expected to take place within the next week, with work on the project expected to begin in mid-March and be concluded in the third quarter of 2017.

Mike Fournier, Willbros Group president and CEO, said: “These awards, coupled with the increase in our Q4 2016 backlog, reflect the ongoing efforts across the organization to build quality backlog.

“While a significant portion of this work will be completed during Q2 and Q3 2017, we sense strong markets for our services and continue to see bidding opportunities that look appealing.”
