ADNOC's petrochemical sites in Ruwais

Aberdeen-headquartered Wood has won a £6million contract with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) to design the “world’s largest refining and petrochemicals complex”.

The firm will deliver pre-front end engineering and design (pre-FEED) for the site in Ruwais, in the western region of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

It will be able to process 600,000 barrels of crude oil per day and will be designed for it to integrate with existing petrochemicals sites in Ruwais.

The pre-FEED phase that the firm is contracted for is due to be completed by the end of the year.

The engineering services firm will also provide other services including a schedule and cost estimate for engineering, procurement and construction work.

ADNOC Refining CEO Jasem Ali Al Sayegh said: “Today marks a significant step towards fulfilling ADNOC’s strategy of developing the largest integrated refinery and petrochemicals complex in the world.

“We are delighted to partner with Wood and to have their global expertise available to us. This a major milestone in the future growth plans of ADNOC Refining.”

Wood said it will draw on expertise from its global engineering talent, supported by a local team in Abu Dhabi, to carry out the work.

Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood’s Specialist Technical Solutions business, said: “We are pleased to continue our relationship with ADNOC Refining.

“This pre-FEED award allows us to partner with ADNOC in developing a world-scale state-of-the-art facility – a flagship development for the UAE.

“This contract also enables us to expand our footprint in the Middle East and supports our commitment to developing and enhancing local engineering capabilities in Abu Dhabi.”
