By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 15
-- Statoil, on behalf of Gassco AS, has signed a framework agreement with Foster Wheeler AG for front-end engineering design (FEED) services for upgrade of the Karsto gas processing plant in Norway.

The plant is being modified to enable it to process light oil and condensate coming onto production in the Norwegian North Sea (OGJ, July 5, 2010, p. 18).

The framework agreement covers a series of FEED projects. Foster Wheeler has received the first FEED call-off contract for modifications that will enable the Karsto plant to process light oil from Gudrun oil and gas field, about 55 km north of Sleipner oil field.

Norwegian authorities recently approved Gudrun development (OGJ, June 28, 2010, Newsletter). Statoil is the Gudrun operator.
