Amec Foster Wheeler has announced the award of a detailed design and engineering contract by Sasol Petroleum Mozambique Limitada for Phase 1 Tranche 1 of the PSA development for surface facilities, located at Temane, 600km north of Maputo in Mozambique.
The scope of work and contract is for a new integrated oil, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and gas project, including flowlines for the fields, located adjacent to Sasol’s and its partners’ existing Temane Central Processing Facility.
Amec Foster Wheeler had previously completed the early engineering works for the project including the development of a Local Content Plan which produced a comprehensive plan to maximise the use of local Mozambican suppliers, contractors and labour during execution of the project.
“This award reinforces Amec Foster Wheeler’s position as a leading Oil & Gas service provider in Mozambique. We have delivered many projects for Sasol and its partners’ in-country, including building the original Temane facility. For this project, we will deploy our extensive expertise to this development which will see further hydrocarbon resources produced to support Southern African growth,” says Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Wheeler Group President for Asia, Middle East, Africa & Southern Europe
This project marks the first phase of the PSA development which covers a contract area of some 1,790 square kilometres and is central to Sasol’s development plans to drive its growth in Southern Africa.
Amec Foster Wheeler has worked continuously with Sasol on projects since 1995 and has played a key role in developing the Mozambican upstream industry. Amec Foster Wheeler was the FEED and EPCm contractors on the original Temane and Pande Projects which created the upstream industry in Mozambique. We have recently successfully completed two further EPCm projects for Sasol in Mozambique.
Just last month Amec Foster Wheeler announced the award of a project management consultancy contract by consultancy company NIRAS to support the next stages in the development of a Kenya Ports Authority project for the offshore relocation and expansion of the Kipevu Oil Terminal (KOT) in Mombasa, Kenya
