Amec Foster Wheeler to assess forward needs for Shell in Brunei
Brunei Shell Petroleum has contracted Amec Foster Wheeler to rejuvenate its assets in Brunei, including oil and gas facilities in the South China Sea.
The scope of the contract, which runs initially for five years, covers concept, front-end engineering and design, detailed design, construction, completions and commissioning, marine management, fabrication management, procurement, and project management.
Amec Foster Wheeler plans to apply its “More 4 Less” lean engineering methodology, originally developed for the matureNorth Sea oil and gas industry, in the program.
This has delivered savings to customers of up to 60% in terms of time and cost, compared to traditional approaches, the contractor claims.
Shell’s contract calls for significant local development, including the creation of more than 300 local Bruneian jobs, using the local supply chain to develop local skills and capabilities through the lifetime of the project.
