Amec Foster Wheeler Instrument Designer in Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia

Amec Foster Wheeler is currently recruiting for a Instrument Designer to work out of our Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia office. This role will be based on the Marjan onshore gas plant project and is expected to run for twelve months.

Saudi Aramco has selected Amec Foster Wheeler to develop a FEED for a mega program in the Onshore Eastern Province surrounding Tanajib, Safaniyah and Ju’aymah in Saudi Arabia. The increased crude and gas production will demand the initial expansion of an onshore GOSP (gas oil separation plant) at Tanajib, a greenfield 2.5bnscf (billion standard cubic feet) gas plant, together with NGL (natural gas liquid) expansion at Wasit. This will all be supported by a new cogeneration power plant expected to generate 750 Mw (megawatts) for both onshore and offshore compression, together with power for onshore utilities.
