Backed by an 85+ year history of operating within the Asia Pacific region, Wood is proud of its longstanding partnerships, underpinned by our proven ability to optimise asset performance, drive capital efficiency and deliver for our customers.
Wood has been present in the Caspian region for over 20 years. We combine our strong knowledge of the area, global expertise across the entire asset life cycle and experience required to operate successfully in the harsh and complex environment of the world’s largest land-locked body of water.
The Middle East is a key growth area for Wood. We have maintained a presence in the region for over 7 decades; helping design, build, operate, maintain, and modify some of the world’s largest and complex facilities.
Wood is strategically located throughout Latin America and the Caribbean in a variety of sectors including oil and gas, refining, chemicals, water, mining, energy, industrial plants and facilities and communications.
Wood provides comprehensive mine and infrastructure planning and design for open-pit and underground mines to help you identify the best option for project development and make the most effective use of your capital.
Our worldwide team provides exceptional services for open-pit and underground mine planning, mining method and fleet selection, development and production scheduling, material handling, mine infrastructure design, backfilling, geotechnical engineering and cost estimating. We also offer a full range of expertise for environmental assessment, mitigation and monitoring, as well as mine closure, remediation and reclamation.
We have decades of experience on five continents and in environments ranging from the tropics to the arctic, and at high elevation. In the last decade, we have provided mine consulting services for projects ranging from less than 1,000 to more than 300,000 tonnes per day from concept to closure. Our mining studies are viewed as credible support documents for acquisition and project financing purposes.
We employ the latest technologies of mining methods and equipment fleets, and have been the leader in shaft construction methods that employ ground freezing. We simulate ore and waste flow to identify bottlenecks in production, and to optimise development and production. The benefits of new technology such as automation and battery-powered equipment are included in tradeoff studies.
Today’s industry faces razor-thin margins, fierce competition and cyclical markets. We use advanced simulation tools to develop a system-wide approach to modeling operations, enabling them to:
Quantify production rates and capacities
Conduct virtual assessments of alternatives
Provide decision support.
Open-pit and underground mine planning and infrastructure design
Cut-off grade and phasing strategies to increase project value
Block cave and stoping methods expertise
Fleet selections and operations optimisation
Blasting and fragmentation studies
Geomechanics, ground support and pit slope stability
Dewatering, filtered tailings and waste rock facilities
Capital and operating cost estimates
Our mining experts understand the complex interactions among mining methods, development and production schedules, and project financial performance. We apply innovative solutions to maximise the value of our customers' mines.
