Fluor has been awarded a contract by BP to perform the front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the Cassia Compression Project off the east coast of Trinidad and Tobago.
The contract includes the design of a new offshore gas compression platform, new connecting bridge and modifications to the existing Cassia hub.
Mark Fields, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in the Americas, said: “Fluor has 50 years of experience developing some of the world’s most complex offshore projects, including several BP facilities in Trinidad and Tobago.
“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.
