Wood secures contract for petrochemicals project

June 20/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Wood has been awarded a new contract by Duqm Refinery and Petrochemicals Industries Company (DRPIC) to provide FEED (front-end engineering design) for a proposed onshore petrochemicals facility at the Special Economic Zone Area Duqm (SEZAD) in southern Oman, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Wood has already delivered associated studies for the facility which will include a world-scale steam cracker unit; production facilities for hydrogen, syngas, methanol, and other petrochemicals; and associated utilities.

SEZAD is one of the largest developments of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa, attracting significant investment for petrochemicals and infrastructure development aimed at supporting Omanís overall vision for strong and sustainable economic growth.

Effective immediately, the project will be delivered by Woodís capital projects teams based in Oman and the UK. The work is due to be completed by Q3 2020 and will see up to 300 people working on the project during the peak delivery phase.

Dave Stewart, CEO of Woodís Asset Solutions business in Europe, Africa, Asia & Australia, comments: "This new contract continues our strong track record in delivering robust engineering design services on large, complex capital projects for greenfield developments in the Middle East.

"The award also demonstrates DRPICís confidence in our ability to successfully execute key design projects in support of their significant investment in Omanís petrochemicals industry and continued growth of the SEZAD."

In 2018, Wood secured a new contract to provide two Terrace Wall double-fired delayed coker heaters at Duqm Refinery, following delivery of the facilityís pre-FEED, FEED, and ongoing project management. After completion, the refinery and petrochemical complex will have the capacity to process around 230,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industries Company LLC is a joint venture between Oman Oil Company and Kuwait Petroleum International.

As MRC wrote before, in late March 2019, Wood was awarded a new contract by Sinochem Quanzhou Petrochemical for its 1MTA ethylene and refinery expansion project being built in Quanzhou, in the Fujian province of southeast China.
