Wood Group lands Pembroke refinery deal

Wood Group Industrial Services (WGIS) has landed a five-year deal to provide services to the onshore Pembroke refinery in Wales.

The five year framework agreement signifies an important expansion for Wood Group into the UK petrochemical sector.

The firm will deliver surface preparation and application of protective coatings under the contract, which has a one year extension option.

Hugh Pelham, managing director of WGIS, said: “WGIS has the broad capabilities and experience that positions us well to further extend our expertise into the downstream process and energy market.

“This is demonstrated by this contract win with Valero Energy, where our focus will be working in partnership with our client to deliver effective and efficient services to enhance the integrity of the asset.”

In 2015 alone, WGIS secured more than US$300m of new contracts.
