Wood put in charge of FEED services on two Saudi Aramco oilfields
UK’s oilfield services provider Wood has secured a multi-million dollar contract with Saudi Aramco to deliver engineering and project management services for the Safaniyah and Manifa oilfields in Saudi Arabia.
The two-year contract includes the delivery of conceptual studies, front-end engineering design (FEED), and project management services for Saudi Aramco’s oil and gas, pipelines, and infrastructure facilities and will maximise production capacity, Wood explained in a statement on Tuesday.
The new FEED contract will be executed by Wood in its Al-Khobar Saudi Arabia and Reading UK offices, as well as Wood’s engineering services hub. Wood has a track record of delivering world-scale FEED contracts for Saudi Aramco, including the recently completed Marjan Crude Increment Programme and Unconventional Gas Programme.
Jim Shaughnessy, Wood’s President of Conventional Energy, pointed out that this is a continuation of Wood’s long and strategic partnership with Saudi Aramco, spanning more than two decades.
He added: “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.”
Also this week, Saudi Aramco extended its contract with Worley for the provision of services across its offshore assets. Under the contract, Worley will continue to provide project management, engineering, design, fabrication, and installation supervision for Saudi Aramco’s portfolio of offshore projects.
