Wood Group to create 100 new jobs with £60m deal in Iraq
Posted on: 27/11/2015

Multinational oil & gas services company Wood Group has won a new $90 million (roughly £60m) project management contract for an onshore facility in Iraq. The contract will see the firm delivering its services to one of the world’s leading international oil companies in Iraq under a three year contract, which is immediately effective.

The Aberdeen-based company announced that Concept and FEED work for future projects will also be included in the contract, which will create 100 new positions whilst also retaining 20 current posts. Staff will be based in Wood Group offices in Iraq and Dubai, allowing Wood Group to continue building on their strong partnerships with their clients in the Middle East.

David Buchan, from Wood Group division WGPSN, said, “Iraq is an area where we see significant growth opportunities for our broad service capabilities and building our presence in this region is a key objective for us. This is reflected in our creation of another office in Dubai, which adds to our presence in the Middle East and our commitment to developing local talent, creating job opportunities and building relationships with the supply chain in Iraq.”

“We look forward to leveraging Wood Group’s international knowledge and expertise towards the continued success and development of our client’s facility,” He added.

Last month, Wood Group won a multi-million dollar subsea contract with BP, to provide engineering services in the Gulf of Mexico, UK and Norwegian continental shelves and offshore Azerbaijan. It was the second major BP contract secured by the company this year.
