Work on the contract will be carried out by Amec Foster Wheeler’s LNG center of expertise in Reading, UK and its team in Malaysia.

“I am pleased that our LNG expertise and project delivery skills are helping to move forward a project which will contribute to the overall development of Timor-Leste. Our LNG Center of Excellence in the UK will work closely with our in-country teams to deliver this work safely and sustainably,” Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Wheeler’s group president for Asia, Middle East, Africa & Southern Europe, said in the press realease.
