Fluor was awarded a contract by Petronas to provide
front-end engineering and design (FEED) services for a new
gas (LNG) regasification terminal in Malaysia.
The new terminal will supply gas to an adjacent 300-megawatt
combined cycle power plant in the town of Lahad Datu,
Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the first
quarter of 2012.
We are pleased to add another significant LNG project to the growing relationship
between the PETRONAS Group and Fluor in Malaysia, said
Ken Choudhary, senior vice president of Fluors energy and
terminal will help address additional power generation needs,
which in turn, will contribute to further industrial and
economic development in the region.
Fluor said it will be utilizing local subcontractors and
suppliers for various facets of the project.
This contract further consolidates Fluors position in
Malaysia where the company is performing other projects in the
oil refining sector and in the LNG
regasification business and where significant project growth opportunities are
expected in the near term.
Fluor was previously part of a joint venture that provided
Petronas with preliminary engineering services for a new LNG
liquefaction plant at the existing facility in Bintulu,
