MIDLAND -- Thirteen Wood employees working in the US Permian shale basin were recently recognized in front of a 200-strong group of team mates by Wood’s chief executive, Robin Watson and Asset Solutions Americas CEO, Andrew Stewart.

Robin and Andrew paid a visit to the booming West Texas region to meet with a group of Wood’s shale facilities personnel working in the basin and pay homage to their commitment to safety and continued demonstration of execution excellence.

Hosting a Texas style barbeque for the troops at Wood’s Seminole facility, 70 mi from the city of Midland, the teams gathered to hear from Wood’s leaders and celebrate those who are raising the safety shield on their projects.

“Meeting with our front-line teams is always such a rewarding experience,” said Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood. “This region is experiencing significant developments with Wood’s 2018 growth both in terms of jobs and revenue outpacing the basins’ production growth.

“All eyes are on the Permian - what is happening here is of significant economic and scientific importance and Wood is very much a part of that. We have incredible teams designing, building, operating and maintaining many shale facilities and pipeline projects in the region. I was proud to meet with them and hear more about our projects, the challenges and the opportunities.”

Adding to this, Andrew Stewart said,
“We see the basin as a long-term home. We’re primarily recognized for designing and building for our customers, but we also operate, maintain and plan to deploy Wood’s full capability to the Permian, with power projects providing another opportunity to expand. Having the opportunity to spend time with our people in the field tells me so much about where we are in our business, it’s a real pulse check. The sacrifice many make to work in harsh and remote conditions, and the commitment to delivery is awe inspiring. This is a highly skilled group who care for each other and respect the region. This visit enabled us to show them the same respect.”
