UK-based Wood has won a prized contract from Saudi Aramco that involves engineering and project management services for the state-owned giant’s Safaniyah and Manifa oilfields.

Wood confirmed the award on Tuesday and said 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,”

The engineering projects at the two giant oilfields will maximise their production capacity, it noted.

The UK-based engineering contractor did not disclose the value of the contract but termed it as a multi-million deal.

Jim Shaughnessy, Wood’s President of conventional energy, said the company will apply its “technical expertise and digital insight to this mega-project, helping to maximise production for two of the world’s most significant offshore oilfields.”

Wood has successfully delivered FEED contracts for Saudi Aramco in the past, including the recently completed Marjan Crude Increment Programme and Unconventional Gas Programme, it said.

The new FEED job will be executed by Wood in its Al-Khobar Saudi Arabia and Reading UK offices, as well as Wood’s engineering services hub, the company added.
