Amec Foster Wheeler lands work on Saudi oilfield development

Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract by Saudi Aramco for facilities required as part of the integrated oil and gas expansion of the Marjan offshore and onshore oilfield in the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia.

Under the five-year contract, Amec Foster Wheeler will deliver the pre-FEED, FEED, overall program management, and other support services for an additional 300,000 barrels per day gas/oil separation train, a world scale greenfield gas processing plant, a cogeneration facility and modifications to an existing facility to add natural gas liquids fractionation capacity, Amec Foster Wheeler informed on Thursday.

The engineering company noted that this award supports the continued development of its capability and capacity to deliver in Saudi Arabia.

Nick Shorten, President, Upstream Capital Projects, Amec Foster Wheeler, said: “We have played a key role in many of Saudi Aramco’s major upstream and downstream investments.”

Shorten added: “With our successful track record with Saudi Aramco stretching back more than 50 years, this latest award for this major oilfield expansion program is a real vote of confidence in our technical expertise and our ability to deliver large and complex projects, plus our long-term commitment to local development.”
