Amec Foster Wheeler has announced that it has been awarded a one-year £125 million EPC contract by BP to build a new refrigeration plant that will maintain efficient operations across the Forties Pipeline System. The contract is for BP's Refrigerated Liquid Petroleum Gas (RLPG) site in Grangemouth, Scotland, UK, which is part of the company's Kinneil Liquid Petroleum Gas (KLPG) Chilldown Project.
The contract was awarded under Amec Foster Wheeler's global agreement with BP to provide it with engineering and project management services for the development of onshore facilities around the world. For the Chilldown Project, Amec Foster Wheeler will provide engineering, installation, project, construction and supply chain management services.
The RLPG Plant currently operates with R22, a colourless, refrigerant gas. EU legislation requires the replacement of R22 and Amec Foster Wheeler provided the conceptual design study identifying R410a as a suitable more environmentally friendly and efficient replacement refrigerant.
John Pearson, Group President Northern Europe & CIS, commented: "We're delighted to be supporting BP with this important contract which is vital for maintaining North Sea operations. This contract is a great example of how we are using our leading brownfield and onshore engineering experience and expertise to deliver the best solution for our client. We have been working with BP at Grangemouth since the 1970s and look forward to providing them with continued safe and efficient operations."
