According to *Constructionweekonline news report, UK-headquartered Wood Group has won an engineering and design contract for Adnoc’s 600,000 barrel-per-day crude oil refinery in Ruwais, Abu Dhabi.

Wood will implement pre-front-end engineering and design (pre-Feed) work under an $8m (AED29.3m) deal for the Adnoc scheme, which the UAE energy giant plans to make the world’s “largest integrated refining and petrochemicals complex”.

As part of its contract, Wood will work with Adnoc to develop a masterplan, map out the project's Feed and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phases, and provide cost estimation licensing selection services for the scheme.

Pre-Feed activities will be completed by the end of 2019, Wood said in a separate statement.

“Today marks a significant step towards fulfilling Adnoc’s strategy of developing the largest integrated refinery and petrochemicals complex in the world,” Adnoc Refining’s chief executive officer, Jasem Ali Al Sayegh, said.

The world's fourth-largest single site refinery, with a total refining capacity of 922,000 barrels per day, is operated by Adnoc Refining. The complex is located 240km west of Abu Dhabi city and is connected to a 1,900km pipeline network that supplies refined oil to ports across the emirate for global export. 

Top bosses at Wood said the company would use the Ruwais contract win to expand its footprint in the Middle East. Chief executive officer of Wood's specialist technical solutions business unit, Bob MacDonald, added: “We are pleased to continue our relationship with Adnoc Refining.

“This pre-Feed award allows us to partner with Adnoc in developing a world-scale [...] flagship development for the UAE.”
