Foster Wheeler JV agrees services agreement with Qatargas


Foster Wheeler AG said that a subsidiary’s joint venture partner, Qatar Kentz WLL, has signed an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCm) framework agreement with Qatargas.

The subsidiary is part of Foster Wheeler’s Global Engineering and Construction (E&C) Group.

The framework agreement covers projects associated with the existing Qatargas LNG facility at Ras Laffan Industrial City and will include both onshore and offshore work.

The agreement will be for three years with an option to extend for a further two years.

“Our joint venture’s combined strengths, Foster Wheeler’s upstream and LNG expertise, and project execution track record, and Qatar Kentz’ local presence, position us very strongly to deliver a full range of high, quality services for Qatargas at its Ras Laffan LNG facility,” said Umberto della Sala, Chief Operating Officer, Foster Wheeler AG.

Qatargas plans to issue invitations to its framework contractors to bid for specific packages of work, which packages may include pre-front end engineering design (pre-FEED), FEED and EPCm services.
