Amec Foster Wheeler clinched a three year framework agreement from BP Iraq NV (BP) to complete conceptual studies and pre-front end engineering design (FEED) work to support BP plc's plans to sustain and grown production at the Rumaila oil field in Iraq.
Unde the agreement, Amec Foster Wheeler will carry out engineering studies for facilities and infrastructure that are crucial for the Rumaila field to sustain and increase production.
Rumaila, one of the world's largest oil fields and the largest producing field in Iraq, is situated in the southern Iraq. The field, which has been in production since 1954, produces an average of 1.34 million barrels per day (bpd) in 2014, higher than 950,000 bpd in 2010 when BP began work. Rumaila now provided over a third of Iraq’s oil.
"We undertook a number of studies on the Rumaila field back in 2010 and this latest framework agreement recognizes our conceptual and pre-FEED expertise and continues our strong relationship with BP and our track record in Iraq. We are looking forward to supporting BP in realizing its objectives for the Rumaila field," Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Wheeler group president for Asia, Middle East, Africa & Southern Europe said Monday in the press release.
