IRVING, US: Fluor Corporation (FLR) has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract by BP Trinidad and Tobago (BP), for its cassia compression project off the east coast of Trinidad and Tobago, near Venezuela.

Fluor’s scope includes the design of a new offshore gas compression platform, new connecting bridge and modifications to the existing cassia hub. The platform will compress gas produced from the existing cassia platforms.

FEED activities are expected to be completed in 2017 with first gas expected in 2020.

“Fluor has 50 years of experience developing some of the world’s most complex offshore projects, including several BP facilities in Trinidad and Tobago. In addition, our Stork division currently provides maintenance, modification and asset integrity services to BP’s offshore assets there. With a focus on maximising local content, we will deliver a safe, reliable and capital-efficient solution to BP,” said Mark Fields, president of Fluor’s energy & chemicals business in the Americas.

“As the project advances, Fluor will use its integrated solution model to support the project. Benefits of this model include an improved design through fabrication and maintenance team engagement in the design process, reduced costs through the global sourcing of major equipment and improved execution through Fluor and Stork’s extensive in-country experience and use of local resources,” said John Harrower, executive director of offshore operations for Fluor.
