UK-based oil and gas services company Wood Group has won two new contracts, worth more than $140M, to provide technical services and expertise to an oil firm in Iraq.
Under the three-year contracts, Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) — one of the group’s three businesses — will offer brownfield front-end engineering design, detailed engineering, project management, procurement services, system completion and commissioning support for operations and start-up on a significant onshore asset in southern Iraq.
Both contracts, set to create over 100 new jobs in the region, will be executed from southern Iraq and Dubai, where WGPSN opened an office in 2015.
WGPSN's eastern region managing director David Buchan said: “These two significant contract wins demonstrate Wood Group’s commitment to working closely with key clients to extend our operations in Iraq, where we see a growth market that complements our broad service capabilities, international knowledge and strong expertise.
“Establishing an office in Dubai and a base in Iraq reflects our intention to build lasting customer relationships and focus on the development of our Iraqi workforce and supply chain partnerships.”
