Wood Group has won two new, three contracts, totaling $140million.

The pair will create 100 new jobs, according to the firm.

The scope includes work in Southern Iraq and Dubai.

According to the terms, Wood Group PSN will provide brownfield front end engineering design, detailed engineering, project management, procurement services, system completion and commissioning support for operations and start-up on a significant onshore asset in southern Iraq.

David Buchan, WGPSN’s eastern region managing director, said: “These two significant contract wins demonstrate Wood Group’s commitment to working closely with key clients to extend our operations in Iraq, where we see a growth market that complements our broad service capabilities, international knowledge and strong expertise.

“Establishing an office in Dubai and a base in Iraq reflects our intention to build lasting customer relationships and focus on the development of our Iraqi workforce and supply chain partnerships.”
