Fluor awarded $20 million offshore platform contract

Fluor Corporation has been awarded $20 million by BP to perform additional work for a new offshore platform in Trinidad and Tobago.

Fluor Corporation has been awarded $20 million by BP to provide front-end engineering and design, project engineering, procurement and construction management services for an offshore gas processing platform in Trinidad and Tobago.

When complete, the project will consist of an unmanned offshore platform designed to process one billion cubic feet per day of natural gas, a subsea pipeline to a nearby platform and a land-based facility to collect and meter nearly three billion cubic feet per day of natural gas. The project is scheduled for completion in June 2005.

Fluor has teamed with two Trinidadian companies to execute the project. It has also established an office in Trinidad, where a single integrated work team will perform engineering, procurement and construction management for the project.

Fluor’s services for this project are being performed under a seven-year continuing services contract under which Fluor will provide similar services on several BP Trinidad & Tobago brownfield and greenfield projects.
