TotalEnergies in Iraq awards Wood $46m contract

Basra – TotalEnergies in Iraq recently awarded Wood a new $46 million, three-year contract.

For the first phase of the Gas Growth Integrated Project in southern Iraq, Wood will assist with purchasing, construction, and commissioning, as well as providing front-end engineering design (FEED).

The Gas Growth Integrated Project plans to build a 1GW solar power plant, a seawater processing facility, and the recovery of gas that is currently flared in the Basra region to feed power production plants.

“This project will improve environmental sustainability through emissions reduction efforts,” said Shaun Dewar, Senior Vice President of Operations, Middle East and Africa at Wood. “As part of this agreement, Wood will also continue to invest in local employment and skills development in the Basra region.”

Wood’s teams in Basra and Dubai will execute the contract, generating 100 additional jobs. Currently, Wood, a renowned British engineering and consulting company, employs approximately 1,300 staff members in Iraq and the UAE.

“We are proud to support TotalEnergies on this project, which aligns with our shared commitment to pursue a secure and sustainable energy supply,” added Dewar.
