What did Worley announce?

Investors appear unfazed by the company’s latest contract win, sending Worley shares into the red.

In this morning’s release, Worley advised it has been awarded a services agreement by CITGO Refining and Chemicals Company L.P.

Under the contract, Worley will provide maintenance, turnaround and sustaining capital services to CITGO’s refineries in the United States.

Situated in Lake Charles, Louisiana and Corpus Christi, Texas, both facilities will see roughly 600 people perform upgrade works. Worley noted that the contractors to be used have previous experience at the sites, providing a seamless delivery of its services.

The contract will run for 5 years and will be managed by Worley’s US field services team.

Worley CEO Chris Ashton welcomed the new deal, saying:

As a global professional services company with an extensive track record of sustaining and optimising refineries globally, we are pleased that CITGO has engaged Worley for services to its Louisiana and Texas facilities.

We look forward to supporting CITGO to deliver on its operational and production targets by providing sustainable and reliable site operations at these refineries.
