Wood enters new market with Valero refinery

Aberdeen-based energy services giant Wood Group has signed a five year contract with Valero Energy that marks an important expansion for Wood into the UK petrochemical sector.

Wood Group Industrial Services (WGIS), Wood Group PSN’s industrial service line business, will provide services to the onshore Pembroke refinery in south west Wales.

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

“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.”

WGIS secured more than $300 million of new contracts last year.
