The project will implement multiphase pump technology across the gathering network of existing oil and gas facilities at the Tengiz and Korolev fields
Fluor Corp has said that KPJV, its joint venture team, will carry out the front-end engineering and design (Feed) for the multiphase pump project in Kazakhstan for TengizChevroil (TCO). Fluor booked its share of the contract value in 2016’s fourth quarter.
Part of TCO’s major capital programme, the project will implement multiphase pump technology across the gathering network of existing oil and gas facilities at the Tengiz and Korolev fields to maintain crude production by reducing wellhead pressure and increasing well deliverability. Some utility systems will also be modified, the company said in a statement.
The integrated project team will be based at Fluor’s Farnborough, UK office, linked to TCO’s future growth project – wellhead pressure management team, which is also at that office.
“Fluor is delighted to have been selected by TCO for this important operational project,” said Al Collins, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals business in Europe, Africa and Middle East. “Through early involvement, we can optimise design and construction solutions and provide a strong foundation for the project’s advancement. We will leverage our team’s extensive knowledge of executing oil and gas projects in Kazakhstan to deliver the project in a safe and efficient manner without disruption to production.”
The project scope includes Feed, detail design and procurement services.
Fluor began working in Kazakhstan in 1982 and at Tengiz in 1997 on a condensate stabilisation project. Since then, Fluor has performed ongoing work in Kazakhstan on numerous additional projects. KPJV is currently executing the world-scale Future Growth Project.
Fluor Corporation is a global engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction and maintenance company that designs, builds and maintains capital-efficient facilities for its clients on six continents.
TengizChevroil (TCO) is a Kazakhstani partnership that explores, develops, produces and markets crude oil, LPG, dry gas and sulphur. In April 1993, TCO was formed between the Republic of Kazakhstan and Chevron Corporation.
