John Wood Group, the Aberdeen-based global engineering and consulting firm, said it has been awarded a multi-year enterprise framework agreement (EFA) to continue to provide services to Shell’s global projects.

“Bringing specialist consulting, engineering, procurement and project management expertise to Shell’s greenfield and brownfield projects, the agreement will see Wood continue to support projects that ensure energy security and enable energy transition projects focused on carbon capture, low-carbon fuels and hydrogen,” said the Aberdeen firm.

“Wood will deploy expertise in decarbonisation, digitalisation and asset life extension to enhance Shell assets worldwide.

“Under the three-year framework, with options for two one-year extensions, services will be provided by Wood’s consulting and engineering teams in Europe, North America, Latin America, South-East Asia, Australia and the Middle East.”

Wood operates in 60 countries and employs 35,000 people.  

Wood CEO Ken Gilmartin said: “This award continues a 70-year relationship between Shell and Wood, spanning more than 20 countries and numerous major projects.

“Complex project excellence is where we excel and we are aligned with Shell in our strategic ambitions to deliver the energy the world needs today while simultaneously delivering the energy transition at pace.

“We look forward to continuing to partner with Shell as we work to design a better energy future together.”
