The Chairman and Managing Director
AMEC has a long–term project management contract with KOC and provides consultancy services across a series of projects, from concept through to construction management and execution.
We have worked in the Middle East for 25 years, providing project management and engineering services. We have built a strong relationship with our customer progressing from basic project management to taking on greater levels of responsibility within their company.
We are also working on a change programme to support KOC in its transition, sharing our commercial skills and working with our customer to modernise their contracts. Our managed projects have now exceeded over 60 million person-hours without a lost time incident.
By working as an integrated partner with our customer, we have been able to implement international standards of project management across the company. Contractors now have even greater confidence in working with KOC, which results in a more competitive tendering environment, with greater choice and more business value for our client.
