Fluor awarded Shell’s Project Hijau Gasoil Phase-1
TEXAS: Fluor Corp announced that it was awarded the Project Hijau Gasoil Phase-1 by Shell Refining Co (Federation of Malaya) Bhd, according to Business Wire.
The project comprises a new 6,000-tonnes-per-day diesel-processing unit in Port Dickson.
Fluor will perform engineering, procurement and construction management services as a follow-on scope of work to its previous front-end engineering and design (FEED) work. Fluor will recognise the undisclosed award value in the third quarter of 2010.
“This important new project award from Shell follows our successfully completed FEED work on Hijau. We appreciate the confidence that Shell has demonstrated in Fluor by awarding us this next phase to bring the project to reality,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group.
The project is expected to peak at about 650 craft and professional employees with work performed from Fluor’s Manila, the Philippines; Haarlem, the Netherlands offices; and the Kuala Lumpur project site.
Fluor Corp, a Fortune 200 company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, designs, builds and maintains many of the world’s challenging and complex projects.
The company provides comprehensive capabilities and expertise in the fields of engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning, operations, maintenance and project management.
Headquartered in Irving, Texas, it had revenues of US$22bil in 2009. — Reuters
