State-run Saudi Aramco has awarded the United Kingdom’s energy and engineering services firm Wood a contract to help the oil giant deliver Marjan oil field in the Eastern Province.
Wood will provide engineering and project management services to develop the oilfield under the contract, which is effective immediately. The multimillion-dollar contract will last for five years, the engineering firm said in a statement, without giving further details.
“We look forward to working in close partnership with Saudi Aramco to bring our broad and enduring expertise in engineering and project management to this project, which is significant for both our client and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” said Wood’s chief executive, Robin Watson.
Wood is currently providing pre-front end engineering and design (pre-FEED) and FEED for Saudi Aramco’s unconventional gas program and detailed engineering and procurement for its sulphate removal facilities projects.
