Amec Foster Wheeler opens new office to support customers in Oman

  • Bringing global capabilities and expertise to local market
  • Long history of supporting Oman
  • Developing the next generation of engineering professionals in Oman

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today the opening of a new office in the Sultanate of Oman. Establishing a permanent presence there will support the transfer of the company's global experience and capabilities to Oman, as well as the development of the next generation of local engineering professionals, while building upon the company's long history of delivering projects for customers in the country.

Recently, Amec Foster Wheeler has won a number of projects in Oman. These include a three-year technical services agreement contract awarded by Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company SAOC (Orpic) in 2015 for the Mina Al Fahal Refinery and Sohar Refinery, Aromatics and Polypropylene plants, both in Oman. In 2015 the company was also awarded a contract by the Oman Tank Terminal Company (OTTCO) for the front-end engineering design of the Ras Markaz Crude Oil Park Project in Oman. This project involves phased development of a terminal designed to hold about 200 million barrels of crude oil, making it one of the largest oil storage facilities of its type.

Amec Foster Wheeler has been active in the Middle East since 1930. Today, the company supplies a wide range of services and technology to all sectors of the process industry in the Middle East including environmental, oil and gas (both onshore and offshore), refining, petrochemicals and power. The company has an established presence in the region including UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Qatar.

I’m delighted that we are bringing our global expertise and experience to Oman, to support our customers in the country, as well as help build local engineering capability for the future. The opening of this office is testament to our commitment to the country, and to the region as a whole.
