Foster Wheeler to perform FEED for Gassco

Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction group has entered into a framework agreement, awarded by energy company Statoil − acting on behalf of natural-gas company Gassco as operator for the Gassled joint venture − for front-end engineering design (FEED) services valid through 2013 to support the development of the Kårstø oil- and gas-processing plant in Norway.

Statoil is modifying the plant, via the Kårstø Life Extension project, to enable it to process new light-oil/condensate production coming on stream in the Norwegian North Sea.

Foster Wheeler has been awarded the first FEED call-off contract for the Gudrun Onshore Modifications project − the objective of which is to enable the Kårstø plant to process light oil from the new Gudrun Field.
