Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract by Wood Mackenzie
to provide consultancy services for two projects in Peru, the
company said on Wednesday.
The two projects are formally named the Energy
Security and South Pipeline Project and the Energy
Node in South Peru Project.
The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed and was
included in the companys second-quarter 2013
Foster Wheeler will develop the design and cost estimates
for both planned investments. The company's scope of work is
expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2013.
The principal stakeholders involved in these two projects
are ProInversion, the Peruvian Government Agency responsible
for promoting private investments and for the awarding process
of these two projects -- and the Ministry of
Energy and Mines, as the governing body of the energy and mines
Wood Mackenzie has been contracted by ProInversion to promote
private investment in infrastructure to strengthen the energy
security of the country, to decentralize the power generation
from the central area of the country and to promote the
development of a petrochemical complex in the south
of Peru as part of the Peruvian Governments
The Energy Security and South Pipeline Project involves the
development of pipelines to support the existing natural gas
and natural gas liquids (NGL) transportation system from
Las Malvinas to the Chiquintirca compression station, and the
development of the southern pipeline from the existing natural
gas transportation system to the south coast.
The Energy Node in South Peru Project will involve
the development of thermoelectric power generation plants with
a capacity up to 2,000 megawatts to promote the development of
an energy center and petrochemical complex in the south
of the country.
Both projects leverage our technical expertise in
geographical information systems, pipelines and power plant
design, said Umberto della Sala, chief operating officer
of Foster Wheeler.
We will evaluate options for the proposed gas
transportation infrastructure and routing, as well as power
plant configuration and location, to accommodate the
challenging Peruvian geography and to optimize the
implementation schedule for the projects," he added.
