UK-based oilfield services provider Wood has secured a multimillion-dollar contract with Saudi Aramco to provide engineering and project management services at the Safaniyah and Manifa oilfields in Saudi Arabia.
The two-year contract includes conceptual studies, front-end engineering design (FEED) and project management services for Saudi Aramco’s oil and gas facilities, pipelines and infrastructure, and will maximize production capacity, Wood said in a statement Tuesday.
The new FEED contract will be executed by Wood at its offices in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia, and Reading, UK, as well as Wood’s engineering services center. Wood has a track record of delivering FEED contracts on a global scale for Saudi Aramco, including the recently completed Marjan Oil Increment Program and the Unconventional Gas Program.
Jim Shaughnessy, Wood’s President of Conventional Energy, noted that this is a continuation of Wood’s long and strategic partnership with Saudi Aramco, which spans more than two decades.
He added: “We are committed to driving efficiency and economic viability for our customers. We will apply our technical expertise and digital vision to this megaproject, helping to maximize production from two of the world’s most important offshore oilfields, helping to maintain access to secure and affordable energy.”
Also this week, Saudi Aramco has extended its contract with Worley for services on its offshore assets. Under the contract, Worley will continue to provide project management, engineering, design, fabrication and facilities supervision for Saudi Aramco’s portfolio of offshore projects.
