Wood secures an engineering contract by SABIC

14 May 2019

Wood has secured a new contract with SABIC to deliver the engineering design for a world-class petrochemical research center in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Wood will provide conceptual, basic and detailed design engineering for SABIC’s new 65,000 m² technology center in Jubail Industrial City on Saudi Arabia’s east coast. The scope of work includes engineering design of analytical and material labs to accommodate testing, characterization and materials analysis, plus support utilities including a warehouse, workshop, and substation.

Effective immediately, the contract will be delivered by Wood’s base in Al-Khobar and builds on the company’s successful delivery of front-end engineering design services for expansion and upgrades to existing SABIC facilities in the region.

Wood was recently selected to develop the world’s largest fully integrated crude oil to chemicals (COTC) complex in Saudi Arabia on behalf of SABIC and Saudi Aramco, as the first PMC contractor.
