Foster Wheeler awarded EPCm contract for compression project in Mozambique
Foster Wheeler AG (Zug, Switzerland; www.fwc.com) announced today that a subsidiary of its Global Engineering and Construction Group has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) contract by Sasol Petroleum International (SPI) for the low pressure compression project at Sasol’s Central Processing Facility (CPF) in Temane, Mozambique.
The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed and was included in the company’s second-quarter 2013 bookings.
Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes provision and procurement of gas turbine-driven low-pressure compressors plus auxiliary equipment, including inlet gas scrubbing equipment and discharge air coolers, a new substation, including high voltage switchgear and transformers, modifications to an existing substation, additional instrument air and nitrogen facilities, and the expansion of the distributed control system to accommodate the new facilities. The objective of the project is to enable the Temane CPF to maintain the design throughput and pressure as the gas field declines. The new facilities are scheduled to be ready for commissioning during the fourth quarter of 2014.
