Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract by Engen Petroleum for engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) services for Engens new multi-products pipeline feeder lines and infrastructure project at the companys Durban refinery in South Africa.
The Foster Wheeler contract value for this project was not disclosed and was included in the companys second-quarter 2011 bookings, the company said.
The objective of this project is to develop the pipeline network from Engens depots to tie in to the Transnet pipeline in order to enhance Engens access to key refined product markets in the South African interior, company officials said.
Transnet is the principal operator of South Africa's fuel pipeline system.
We are pleased that Engen has selected Foster Wheeler for this project, our largest win with Engen to date, said Umberto della Sala, interim CEO for Foster Wheeler AG.
This win reflects Engens confidence in our EPCm project execution capability and track record in South Africa, which is a market in which we plan to continue to grow, leveraging our strong execution center in the country.
