The award follows on from Wood’s successful delivery of the engineering and process design phase, the technology package and licence of the company’s SYDEC (selective yield delayed coking) technology.

Effective immediately, the contract will be delivered by Wood’s process and technology specialists based in New Jersey, US, and builds on Wood’s strong contribution to the Duqm Refinery to date, including the successful delivery of the overall facility pre-FEED, FEED and ongoing project management.

“Wood has an established track record in the design and development of fired heaters spanning more than a century and this contract also expands our footprint further in the Middle East,” added MacDonald.

The contract is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2020.
