Fluor Expands Offices into Alaska

Fluor Corporation announced the opening of its Alaska office in Anchorage to support projects in the region. An initial staff of 50 employees, backed by Fluor's global workforce, will perform engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance services for the oil and gas, mining, and government sectors.

The office will be located at 3800 Centerpoint Drive, Suite 200 in midtown Anchorage.

 The Company will host a grand opening at the new office location in Anchorage on August 27, 2008, from 4 to 7 p.m.

Many of Fluor's key clients in the oil and gas industry have expressed an interest in Fluor returning to Anchorage to support their increasing needs in the region. The Alaska office will offer operations that not only will support many of Fluor's clients in Alaska, but also will serve strategic global interests at other arctic and sub-arctic project sites.

"Fluor has a long history of executing some of the most complex projects in the most challenging regions of the world," said David Seaton, Fluor's group president of Energy and Chemicals. "We will continue to serve the needs of our clients in the region, expand our resource base and work with the local community in Anchorage and throughout Alaska."

Fluor will leverage its extensive experience in Alaska to support the growing engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance needs on the North Slope and throughout the state.

The most well-known project executed by Fluor in Alaska was the engineering, procurement and construction of the pump stations, remote gate valve sites and marine terminal of the Trans Alaska Pipeline System, one of the largest pipeline systems in the world, which delivers oil 800 miles from Alaska’s North Slope to the Port of Valdez.
