Aramco awards Fadhili gas plant contract

Saudi Aramco has awarded subsidiaries of Foster Wheeler’s global engineering and construction group contracts for engineering and project management for developing the Fadhili gas program in the eastern province of Saudi Arabia. Foster Wheeler did not disclose the contract’s value.

Foster Wheeler will execute the front-end engineering and design contract for the 1.5-bcfd grassroots Fadhili gas plant to handle nonassociated natural gas. In addition to the plant, Foster Wheeler’s scope will include the onshore Khursaniyah upstream facilities, the Fadhili downstream pipelines, a residential camp, and industrial support at the new plant.

The new Fadhili gas plant will be about 19 miles southwest of the existing Khursaniyah gas plant (OGJ Online, June 26, 2007; Apr. 25, 2012).

Foster Wheeler will also prepare cost estimates, undertake procurement of long-lead equipment, undertake basic engineering design, and prepare the invitation to bid packages for the engineering, procurement, and construction contracts. Following appointment of the EPC contractors, Foster Wheeler will provide project management for the EPC phase.
