Fluor snags EPC Contract for Deep Water Gas-to-Pow

Fluor Offshore Solutions has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) support contract for Phase 3 of the Malampaya Deep Water Gas-to-Power Project in the Philippines. The project is being undertaken on behalf of the Philippine Government by the Service Contract 38 consortium composed of Shell Philippines Exploration B.V., Chevron Malampaya LLC and Philippine National Oil Company–Exploration Corporation.

Power plants using Malampaya gas generate approximately 40 per cent of the power for the main island of Luzon.

“This new EPC contract for the Malampaya Deep Water Gas-to-Power Project solidifies our strength in the growing global offshore gas market,” said Fluor’s president for Energy & Chemicals, Peter Oosterveer. “Fluor’s long-term presence in the Philippines is a testament to the outstanding work by our professionals, now 2,220 strong, in our Manila and Cebu offices, who are providing full-service project execution.”

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. The project has begun and is slated for completion in 2015.
