Fluor Corporation has been named program management consultant (PMC) for the Shah Gas Development Project by Abu Dhabi Gas Development Company, in a contract worth $160 million.
Fluor will perform PMC services for the main process packages of the project and will oversee the overall program. The project is located in Shah, about 220 kilometers southwest of Abu Dhabi city.
“After completing front-end engineering and design (Feed) services for the Shah Gas Development program, we are pleased to be chosen as the program manager for this important upstream gas project,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group.
The project will be led by Fluor’s Aliso Viejo, California operations centre along with its Abu Dhabi office.
