IRVING, US/MANILA, PHILIPPINES: Fluor Corporation’s Fluor Offshore Solutions unit recently signed a project contract in Batangas City for the Malampaya next phase development.

The Malampaya project is in its third phase and encompasses new installation of a depletion compression platform that is linked by a bridge to the existing shallow water platform. Fluor is responsible for the topsides and substructure. The project is under way with expected completion in late 2015.

The Malampaya deepwater gas-to-power project for the Philippine department of energy (operated by Shell Philippines exploration on behalf of joint venture partners - Chevron Malampaya and Philippine National Oil Co) is among the most significant in the Philippines because it generates up to 40 per cent of the power for the main island of Luzon.

“Fluor is focused on utilizing local craft and professional labour. We are pleased to work with Shell and their partners on this important project,” said Lee Richardson, VP, Offshore Solutions, Fluor.

This will be a groundbreaking energy project for Fluor - a first to be designed, engineered, procured, fabricated and installed in the Philippines by local contractors, the company informed.
