Amec Foster Wheeler secures 'major' contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum Sdn Bhd (BSP) for the rejuvenation of assets in Brunei, which will see the company create over 300 local jobs.

Amec Foster Wheeler revealed Friday that it has secured a ‘major’ contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum Sdn Bhd (BSP) for the rejuvenation of assets in Brunei, which will see the company create over 300 local jobs.

As part of the contract, significant local development is planned, with the local supply chain anticipated to develop skills and capabilities through the lifetime of the project.

The work includes concept, Front End Engineering Design (FEED), detailed design, construction, completions and commissioning, marine management, fabrication management, procurement, and project management. Scheduled to run for five years from March 2017, with two one-year options to extend, the contract focuses on Brunei Shell Petroleum's oil and gas assets in the South China Sea.

I'm delighted that Amec Foster Wheeler has been selected to deliver such an important contract for Brunei Shell Petroleum,” Amec Foster Wheeler President of Oil, Gas & Chemicals John Pearson said.

“We are bringing together Amec Foster Wheeler's unique combination of brownfield expertise, 'More 4 Less' methodology, global capabilities, and long-term customer relationships to maximize the value of Brunei Shell Petroleum's assets in Brunei,” he added.

Amec Foster Wheeler's 'More 4 Less' lean engineering methodology, originally developed to meet the challenges of the mature North Sea oil and gas industry, will play an important role in the contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum, the company said in a statement.

“Efficiencies from 'More 4 Less' have delivered Amec Foster Wheeler's customers savings of up to 60 percent in time and cost, compared to traditional approaches,” an Amec Foster Wheeler representative said.
