Amec Foster Wheeler said on Friday that the contract will run for five years from March 2017, with two one-year options to extend, and includes Brunei Shell Petroleum’s oil and gas assets in the South China Sea.
John Pearson, Amec Foster Wheeler’s President, Oil, Gas & Chemicals said: “I’m delighted that Amec Foster Wheeler has been selected to deliver such an important contract for Brunei Shell Petroleum. We are bringing together Amec Foster Wheeler’s unique combination of brownfield expertise, ‘More 4 Less’ methodology, global capabilities, and long-term customer relationships to maximize the value of Brunei Shell Petroleum’s assets in Brunei.”

The company also noted that, as part of the contract, a significant local development in Brunei is planned, including the creation of over 300 local Bruneian jobs, using the local supply chain that will develop local skills and capabilities through the lifetime of the project.
