Wood secures contract for major petrochemicals project in Oman

Wood has already delivered associated studies for the proposed greenfield 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 Oman’s overall vision for strong and sustainable growth.

Delivery of the FEED stage of the project is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2020 and will see up to 300 people working on the project during the peak delivery phase.
Commenting on the contract award, Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions business in Europe, Africa, Asia & Australia, said:

“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 DRPIC’s confidence in our ability to successfully execute key design projects in support of their significant investment in Oman’s 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 facility’s 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.
