Wood Group has combined with Amec Foster Wheeler to form a new global leader in the delivery of project, engineering and technical services to energy and industrial markets. To find out more about Wood visit our new website at www.woodplc.com


Our well-proven hydrogen production unit design has been continuously updated and improved to deliver the highest reliability of any reforming unit on the market, while incorporating many features that improve plant efficiency, lower maintenance costs, simplify operations and enhance plant safety.

Our technology has been selected for more than 100 hydrogen and synthesis gas plants world-wide, with a total installed capacity of more than 3.5 million Nm3/h of hydrogen. Our range of experience is wide, with feedstocks ranging from natural gas to naphtha, and plant capacities ranging in size from 5,000 to over 200,000 Nm3/h.

Unique reformer design

Our unique Terrace Wall™ reforming furnace is characterised by a firing arrangement and sloped-wall radiant section design that together enable long catalyst tube life (often in excess of 100,000 hours) and deliver the flexibility to extend a reformer's operating envelope. This often allows production of hydrogen in excess of the unit’s design capacity, which may in turn deliver additional economic benefits.

Our reforming units can operate with ultra-low-NOx burners to meet tightening environmental emission standards world-wide.


Amec Foster Wheeler has extensive knowledge and experience in all refining processes and technologies
