ABERDEEN, UK: Wood Group has secured a new multi-million-dollar contract with Duqm Refinery and Petrochemicals Industries to provide two Terrace Wall double-fired delayed coker heaters at their refinery on the south eastern coast of the Sultanate of Oman.

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.

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

Duqm Refinery and Petrochemical Industries Company LLC is a joint venture between Oman Oil Company and Kuwait Petroleum International. On completion, the refinery and petrochemical complex will have the capacity to process around 230,000 barrels of crude oil per day.

“We are delighted to continue to support the development of Duqm refinery and will draw on our experience of delivering our market-leading delayed coking technology and proprietary equipment at greenfield refineries across the globe. 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,” Bob MacDonald, CEO of Wood’s Specialist Technical Solutions business.
