Foster Wheeler New Pressure Compression Project From Sasol Petroleum

ZUG, SWITZERLAND: Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction Group subsidiary has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) contract by Sasol Petroleum International (SPI) for the low pressure compression project at Sasol’s Central Processing Facility (CPF) in Temane, Mozambique. The contract value was not disclosed.

Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes provision/procurement of gas turbine-driven low pressure compressors plus auxiliary equipment, including inlet gas scrubbing equipment and discharge air coolers, a new substation, including high voltage switchgear and transformers, modifications to an existing substation, additional instrument air and nitrogen facilities, and the expansion of the distributed control system to accommodate the new facilities. The new facilities are scheduled to be ready for commissioning during the fourth quarter of 2014.

“We first worked with SPI in Mozambique in 2000, when we developed the basic design and engineering package for the original Temane Field Development, the first major upstream development in Mozambique. We were subsequently awarded the EPCm contract for this project, which project we safely and successfully completed in 2004, with significant development and use of local labour, subcontractors and suppliers. We have gone on to work with SPI on the further development of its gas assets and look forward to adding this latest award to our list of project delivery successes in Africa,” said Umberto della Sala, President and Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.
