Aberdeen-headquartered Wood has secured a multi-million dollar front-end engineering design (FEED) contract with Saudi Aramco.
The deal with the oil giant covers the delivery of engineering and project management services for the Safaniyah and Manifa oilfields in Saudi Arabia.
Due to run for two years, the contract includes the delivery of conceptual studies and FEED for Saudi Aramco’s oil and gas, pipelines and infrastructure facilities.
It is aimed at maximising production capacity.
Jim Shaughnessy, Wood’s president of conventional energy, said: “We are delighted to continue our long and strategic partnership with Saudi Aramco, spanning more than two decades.
“We are committed to driving efficiency and economic viability for our clients. We will apply our technical expertise and digital insight to this mega-project, helping to maximise production for two of the world’s most significant offshore oilfields which will help to maintain access to secure and affordable energy.”
Wood has a successful track record of delivering worldscale FEED contracts for Saudi Aramco, including the recently completed Marjan Crude Increment Programme and Unconventional Gas Programme.
This latest contract will be executed by Wood in its Al-Khobar Saudi Arabia and Reading UK offices, as well its engineering services hub.
The engineering giant recently won a deal with Turkish Petroleum for the Sakarya gas field development project, 93miles off the country’s coast.
As the largest gas reserve in Turkey, Sakarya has capacity of 405 billion cubic metres of natural gas.
