Sasol taps Foster Wheeler to engineer Mozambique gas compression project

09.10.2013  | 

Foster Wheeler has been awarded an EPCm contract by Sasol Petroleum for the low-pressure compression project at Sasol’s central processing facility (CPF) in Temane, Mozambique.


Foster Wheeler has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) contract by Sasol for the low-pressure compression project at Sasol’s central processing facility (CPF) in Temane, Mozambique.

The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed and was included in the company’s second-quarter 2013 bookings.

Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes provision/procurement of gas turbine-driven low pressure compressors plus auxiliary equipment, including inlet gas scrubbing equipment and discharge air coolers, a new substation, including high voltage switchgear and transformers, modifications to an existing substation, additional instrument air and nitrogen facilities, and the expansion of the distributed control system to accommodate the new facilities.

The objective of the project is to enable the Temane CPF to maintain the design throughput and pressure as the gas field declines.

The new facilities are scheduled to be ready for commissioning during the fourth quarter of 2014.

“We first worked with [Sasol] in Mozambique in 2000, when we developed the basic design and engineering package for the original Temane Field Development, the first major upstream development in Mozambique,” said Umberto della Sala, chief operating officer of Foster Wheeler.

“We were subsequently awarded the EPCm contract for this project, which project we safely and successfully completed in 2004, with significant development and use of local labour, subcontractors and suppliers," he continued. 

"We have gone on to work with SPI on the further development of its gas assets and look forward to adding this latest award to our list of project delivery successes in Africa.”
