Wood revealed Monday that it has been hired to support Saudi Aramco in the delivery of one of its ‘mega projects’ in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The new multi-million dollar, five-year, contract will see teams from Wood’s UK, Saudi Arabia and India offices undertake front end engineering design (FEED), major increment and overall project management consultancy work to develop the Marjan oil field in the state’s eastern province.
“We look forward to working in close partnership with Saudi Aramco to bring our broad and enduring expertise in engineering and project management to this project, which is significant for both our client and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Robin Watson, Wood’s chief executive, said in a company statement.
“We have been operating in the Middle East for around 75 years and continue to ambitiously pursue opportunities to leverage our global expertise and grow our presence in the region. Our commitment to growing capability and capacity in the Kingdom will be demonstrated further on this contract, where we will focus on nurturing talent, providing employment opportunities and partnering with the supply chain,” he added.
Wood has worked with Saudi Aramco for more than 30 years. It is currently providing pre-FEED and FEED for Saudi Aramco’s Unconventional Gas Program and detailed engineering and procurement for its Sulphate Removal Facilities projects.
