Foster Wheeler awarded contract by Discovery Gas Transmission

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG announced that Foster Wheeler Upstream, part of its Global Engineering and Construction Group, has been awarded a contract by Discovery Gas Transmission to provide design, engineering and technical services for a junction platform, facilities and associated pipelines within the Discovery System at South Timbalier 283, in the Gulf of Mexico. The platform, located in approximately 350 feet of water, will be a four-pile structure with a two-level deck.

The new infrastructure will enable the existing Discovery pipeline to operate at a higher pressure, both before and after the connection of the new Keathley Canyon pipeline. “This project gives us an opportunity to fully showcase our wide range of capabilities and will build on our track record for delivering complex offshore projects in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Clive Vaughan, Chief Executive Officer, Foster Wheeler Upstream.
