Alliance extension

Foster Wheeler Energy has been awarded a two-year extension to its existing alliance contract with Shell for the provision of services at its Stanlow Manufacturing Complex.


Foster Wheeler’s UK-based subsidiary, Foster Wheeler Energy, has been awarded a two-year extension to its existing alliance contract with Shell for the provision of services at its Stanlow Manufacturing Complex.



The contract will extend Foster Wheeler’s existing provision of basic design, engineering, procurement and construction management services at Shell’s facility situated south of the Mersey estuary.



This will be the second extension to the current contract, which was originally signed in 1997.


The contract will now be carried through to 2011, with value for the bookings throughout the period determined as individual orders are received.



Michael Beaumont, chairman and chief executive of Foster Wheeler Energy, said: ‘This contract extension represents a demonstration of the success of our alliance relationship with Shell in the UK.



‘Our team based at Shell’s Stanlow Manufacturing Complex has grown steadily over the last eight months in order to respond to a higher refinery/chemical complex workload.



‘Shell has expressed its appreciation for the work of our site team, and for the significant and continuous support of our specialists and supplementary resources from our UK operations.’


Nigel Keech, projects manager at Shell, added: ‘Shell UK Oil Products Limited is pleased to continue the successful alliance with Foster Wheeler Energy Limited. The alliance has an important role in enabling Shell to deliver its business plan.’
