Foster Wheeler bags MEG facility contract from Qatar Petroleum, Shell

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler AG’s Global Engineering and Construction group subsidiary is awarded a contract by Shell Global Solutions International BV to develop a basic engineering package (BEP) for a world-scale mono-ethylene glycol (MEG) facility at Ras Laffan, Qatar. The value of Foster Wheeler’s contract was not disclosed.

The MEG facility will be part of a new petrochemicals complex in Ras Laffan Industrial City being developed by a joint venture of Qatar Petroleum and Shell. The two-train MEG facility, based on Shell’s OMEGA technology, is planned to produce 1.5 million tonne per annum of MEG.

“We believe our project execution performance on Shell’s MEG facility in Singapore, one of the world’s largest MEG facilities, was a key factor in positioning us for this award,” said Umberto della Sala, President and Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.

“Our team for the Qatar MEG project will include key members of the team which successfully delivered the Singapore project. We will leverage our understanding of Shell’s OMEGA process and our experience from the Singapore project, which was the largest OMEGA facility built to date, to deliver a high quality basic engineering package for our client,” added della Sala.
