Christian Brown, President, Oil & Gas, SNC-Lavalin, said: “Not only does this contract further demonstrate our industry-recognized onshore construction solutions, it also emphasizes our commitment to supporting Saudi Aramco’s IKTVA localization program to increase the employment and skills development of local Saudi talent.”

Wasit Gas Plant is one of the largest gas plants to come onstream in Saudi Arabia, and is an enabler for the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 economic roadmap, feeding into the national master gas network to meet domestic energy demand.
