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.
We address life cycle needs to increase production and improve operability, and have successfully delivered more than 2,000 flow assurance projects for more than 200 companies worldwide.
We are industry leaders in flow assurance and process optimisation. Our specialist team supports customers with innovative technology, robust analytics and software systems that are tried and tested in the field.
Our expertise spans all project stages, both onshore and offshore. We understand and mitigate key flow assurance issues through our technical consulting services, from design to operation. We are focused on improving efficiency, safety and cost.
