Phillips 66 has handed Wood Group a five-year deal to carry out a range of services at its Sweeny refinery near Houston.
A total of 175 Wood Group employees, about 80% of whom worked for the previous contractor, will be based at the refinery to provide the maintenance services.
Wood Group has supported the refinery for more than 20 years, providing specialty heating, ventilation and air conditioning and construction services, and upgrades to the process controls, alarms and environmental data management systems.
Andrew Stewart, CEO for Wood Group’s asset life cycle solutions business in the western region, said: “This contract builds on our long-standing relationship with Phillips 66 supporting the Sweeny facility and other downstream and chemical assets across the US.
“We look forward to providing cost-effective services and efficient manpower practices to improve the refinery’s performance across our maintenance, small capital construction, and shutdowns and turnarounds programs.”
