Foster Wheeler bags feed contract for LNG project

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler’s subsidiary of Global Engineering and Construction Group has been selected by Rosneft and ExxonMobil to undertake the initial phase of the front-end engineering design (FEED) for a proposed Russian Far East liquefied natural gas (LNG) project. Foster Wheeler is one of two companies to be awarded separate contracts for the initial FEED work prior to selection of a single contractor for the second FEED phase. The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed.

Foster Wheeler will undertake preliminary engineering and execution planning for the LNG plant and associated gas pipelines, infrastructure and marine facilities. The work will include location and concept studies, design basis definition, main technical solutions development, constructability assessment, definition of project execution strategies and preparation of preliminary information for submission to the Russian authorities.

“We are delighted to have been selected by two of the world’s major oil and gas operators for this LNG liquefaction project in the Russian Far East. This award is testament to Foster Wheeler’s proven capabilities in the design and construction of large-scale LNG facilities in remote, challenging and environmentally sensitive locations. Our proven track record in the delivery of LNG plants using modularization and pre-fabrication strategies will be a key factor in the development of robust and efficient concepts during the initial front-end design phase,” said Umberto della Sala, President and Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.
