“As ICE Wood, we will be able to leverage the breadth and strength of the ICE Petroleum and Wood organisations to broaden capability, grow our customer base and deliver impactful, differentiated solutions for clients operating critical energy infrastructure across Malaysia.

“I am pleased to welcome Abdul Jalil Maraicar as part of this evolution in our journey and know that, together, we will deliver a unique proposition to unlock further growth in the region.”

Abdul Jalil Maraicar, Director of ICE Wood, adds: “The merger of capabilities is timely as both ICE Petroleum and Wood seek to support the growing and ever-emerging needs of the energy industry.

“The strong parallels between the ethos and expertise of both Wood and ICE Petroleum, together with almost 200 years of collective experience, position ICE Wood as a leading engineering and operations partner in Malaysia.
