Subsidiaries of Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction Group have been awarded contracts for the FEED for Saudi Aramco’s Khurais Arabian light crude increment program in Saudi Arabia. The contract value was not disclosed and was included in the company’s second quarter 2013 bookings.

Contract details

The program is being implemented to increase production capacity at the Khurais Central Processing Facilities (CPF) by 300 000 bpd from the current capacity of 1.2 million bpd, as well as enhance production from the Mazalij and Abu Jifan fields by installation of a satellite gas oil separation plant. Under the contract Foster Wheeler will be responsible for the FEED, equipment and material specifications, development of a cost estimate, and procurement assistance for long lead teams.
