A subsidiary of Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction (E&C) group and the subsidiary’s joint venture partner, Qatar Kentz, have signed an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) framework agreement with Qatargas.

The framework agreement covers projects associated with the existing Qatargas LNG facility at Ras Laffan Industrial City and will include both onshore and offshore work.
