The contract was awarded to the company by BP Iraq NV (BP) to complete conceptual studies and pre-front end engineering design (FEED) work.

Rumaila, one of the world's largest oil fields and the largest producing field in Iraq, is situated in the southern region of Iraq and has been producing since 1954. Average daily production has been rising steadily, from around 950,000 bpd in 2010 to 1.34 mn bpd in 2014.  Rumaila now delivers more than a third of Iraq’s oil.

Amec Foster Wheeler's scope of work is to carry out engineering studies for facilities and infrastructure that are crucial for the Rumaila field to sustain and increase production.

Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Wheeler’s group president for Asia, Middle East, Africa, and Southern Europe, said,

“We undertook a number of studies on the Rumaila field back in 2010. This latest framework agreement recognises our conceptual and pre-FEED expertise and continues our strong relationship with BP as well as our track record in Iraq. We are looking forward to supporting BP in realising its objectives for the Rumaila field.”
