Global engineering firm Wood has announced a deal for front-end engineering design with IRPC Public Company Limited, formerly Thai Petrochemical Industry Public Company in south east Asia.
The Aberdeen-headquartered firm confirmed the one-year contract will be delivered from Wood’s offices in Sriracha, Thailand, and secures around 100 jobs in the country.
Work will include engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor pre-qualification; EPC contractor invitation to bid (ITB) preparation and EPC contractor bid evaluation support services to support IRPC’s expansion of their aromatics business.
Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions business in Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia, said: “Wood has been working in partnership with IRPC for more than a decade and the award of this latest contract is a clear demonstration of its confidence in our ability to provide the highest quality services under challenging schedule requirements.
“Growing our share in the oil & gas market in this region is a key strategic focus for Wood. We look forward to leveraging our strong customer knowledge and expertise on large-scale FEED projects to support the development of this asset, which will contribute significantly to Thailand’s growing energy and petrochemical needs.”
