IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation (FLR) has been awarded a project and construction management services contract by BHP for the South Flank iron ore project located in the Pilbara, Western Australia.

The work is being performed from BHP’s office in Perth, Australia, with Fluor and BHP managing the project together as an integrated project team.
