Texas, October 19, 2011
Fluor Corporation, a leader in engineering, procurement, construction and management sector, said its unit has won a front-end engineering and design (Feed) contract to develop new offshore facilities in Abu Dhabi.
The feed contract was awarded to Fluor Offshore Solutions by Abu Dhabi Marine Operating Company (Adma-Opco) for the new facilities at the Nasr Field, 30 km northeast of Umm Shaif Super Complex in Abu Dhabi.
The Nasr Full Field Development Project includes seven wellhead towers, super complex facilities including gas processing and oil separation production facilities, utilities platform, living quarters, infield subsea pipelines and an export pipeline to Das Island.
On the contract win, Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor's Energy & Chemicals Group, said, 'This is our third major Gulf offshore project within the last 18 months and underscores Fluor's strength in the offshore oil and gas sector in the Middle East and the UAE in particular.'
'We are encouraged that Adma-Opco has once again put its trust in Fluor for this new project. This demonstrates the excellent relationship our team has worked so hard to develop with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and its operating companies,' he added.
The Feed portion of the project is currently under way in Fluor's Houston and Abu Dhabi offices.
Lee Richardson, vice president of Fluor Offshore Solutions, said 'Fluor is focused on continuing our long history with Adma-Opco, and we are pleased to have been selected for this major offshore development project.'
