Fluor Corp. has been selected by BP Trinidad and Tobago to perform the front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the Cassia Compression Project off the east coast of Trinidad and Tobago.
According to a news release, Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value into backlog in the first quarter of 2017.
Fluor’s work will include the design of a new offshore gas compression platform, a new connecting bridge and modifications to the existing Cassia hub, the release said. The platform will compress gas produced from the existing Cassia platforms.
“Fluor has 50 years of experience developing some of the world’s most complex offshore projects, including several BP facilities in Trinidad and Tobago,” said Mark Fields, president of Fluor’s energy and chemicals business in the Americas, in the release. “In addition, our Stork division currently provides maintenance, modification and asset integrity services to BP’s offshore assets there. With a focus on maximizing local content, we will deliver a safe, reliable and capital efficient solution to BP.”
FEED activities are expected to be completed in 2017 with first gas expected in 2020, according to the release.
