John Wood Group said it would provide maintenance services, modifications and shutdown support as part of the contract, which covered Shell's onshore facilities in Batangas and offshore assets in the Malampaya field, near Palawan Island.

John Wood Group said the contract would be supported by Wood's established local presence in Manila and regional upstream hub in Kuala Lumpur, creating 60 new positions.

The Malampaya deepwater gas-to-power project represented "one of the largest investments" in the history of the Philippines, the board explained.

It was the start of the country's natural gas industry supplying gas to provide 3,200 megawatts of power to meet about 30-50% of the country's power generation requirements.
