Fluor Wins Offshore Philippines EPC Contract
Fluor Offshore Solutions gains engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) support contract for Malampaya deep-water gas-to-power project.
The project is being undertaken on behalf of the Philippine Government by the Service Contract 38 consortium composed of Shell Philippines Exploration B.V. (Operator), Chevron Malampaya LLC and Philippine National Oil Company—Exploration Corporation.
This landmark project is among the most significant in the Philippines. Approximately 40 percent of the power for the main island of Luzon is generated by power plants using Malampaya gas.
Malampaya Phase 3 involves the design, fabrication and installation of a new depletion compression platform that is linked by a bridge to the existing shallow water platform. Fluor is responsible for the engineering and procurement for the new depletion compression platform as well as modifications required on the shallow water platform.
Additional Fluor responsibilities include freight forwarding, material management for onshore fabrication and offshore installation, and preparation of work scopes for transportation and installation. The project is being performed locally from Fluor’s burgeoning full-service execution centers in Manila and Cebu as well as a local fabrication yard in the Philippines. The project is under way and is expected to be complete in 2015.
This new contract follows Fluor’s successful completion of the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for Phase 3. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the third quarter.
Fluor Offshore Solutions is a subsidiary of the Fluor Corporation, headquartered in Irving, Texas.
