ZUG, Switzerland –Foster Wheeler Upstream (FWLT:NASDAQ GS) has won a contract from Discovery Gas Transmission for design engineering and technical services for a junction platform, facilities, and associated pipelines within Discovery’s South Timbalier 283 Gulf of Mexico system.

The four-pile platform with a two-level deck will be in 350 ft (107 m) of water. It will be unmanned but with a control system designed to shut down the facility in the event of an upset condition.
