Shell Iraq Petroleum (Shell) has awarded a commissioning services contract to Wood Group-CCC (WGCCC), a company equally owned by Wood Group PSN (WGPSN) and Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC), providing operations and maintenance services to the oil and gas and petrochemical industries in the Middle East. The contract is to commission the first phase of the Majnoon field, near Basra in Southern Iraq.

Majnoon is one of the world's largest oil fields, estimated by the Iraqi government to hold about 38 billion barrels of oil. It is being executed by Shell Iraq Petroleum, as project operator with other partners Petronas and Iraqi Ministry of Oil.

The one-year contract is effective June 2013. WGCCC will be responsible for the provision of skilled resources, tools, services and test equipment to assist the start-up, commissioning and testing of the new production facilities in the Majnoon field. New production facilities include well site facilities, a central production facility and all new-build facilities and utilities required to operate the field, including pipelines and infrastructure.

WGCCC will employ approximately 200 personnel to service the contract. This workforce will be based onsite at the Majnoon facilities, approximately 70km from Basra.

David Buchan, WGPSN's Middle East director and board director of WGCCC said: "We will be supporting Shell on the start-up and commissioning of its facilities in the Majnoon field until steady state operations are achieved and the facilities begin operations.

"This is a significant contract for WGCCC and marks our continued expansion across the Middle East. We are currently deploying up to 200 new personnel to service the contract, demonstrating the strength of WGCCC's ability to make expertise available to our customers' wherever they need it."
