Wood Group has been selected to develop the world’s largest fully integrated crude oil to chemicals (COTC) complex in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, on behalf of Saudi Aramco and SABIC as the first PMC contractor.

The company will provide front end engineering design (pre-FEED and FEED) and project management services during the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phase, supporting the development of the complex that is expected to process 400,000 barrels per day and approximately nine million tons of chemicals and base oils annually.

The contract is expected to continue through to the start of operations, forecast for 2025. It will be executed from Wood’s Reading and Al-Khobar offices.

Robin Watson, Wood’s chief executive: “We are proud to have been selected to be a contractor with Saudi Aramco and SABIC to deliver this significant greenfield onshore facility that will be a first for Saudi Arabia and among the first in the world to integrate the refinery and chemical process in this way.“
