An Aberdeen-based oil and gas company’s US branch will work with one of the world’s largest petrochemical companies during their multi-billion dollar Texas expansion.
Wood Group’s Mustang’s Automation and Control business unit is providing process control systems, detailed engineering, procurement and fabrications services for the huge project by ExxonMobil Chemical Company.
The work will take place at their Baytown and Mont Belvieu plants near Houston.
The Wood Group project scope includes procurement, integration and packaging of the distributed control systems, safety instrumented systems, analysers, information and telecommunications systems.
Richard Seale, president of Wood Group Mustang Automation and Control, said: “ExxonMobil Chemical involved our team early in the project to establish interfaces and ensure alignment and cooperation with the EPC contractors.
“This early engagement is resulting in a fit-for-purpose design that will ensure the automation systems provide ExxonMobil Chemical with the best-possible operability and cost-effective solutions.”
