AmecFW wins Sasol contract in Mozambique

Amec Foster Wheeler announces today the award of a detailed design and engineering contract by Sasol Petroleum Mozambique Limitada for Phase 1 Tranche 1 of the PSA development for surface facilities, located at Temane, 600km north of Maputo in Mozambique.

The scope of work and contract is for a new integrated oil, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and gas project, including flowlines for the fields, located adjacent to Sasol’s and its partners’ existing Temane Central Processing Facility.

Amec Foster Wheeler previously completed the early engineering works for the project. This included the development of a Local Content Plan which produced a comprehensive plan to maximise the use of local Mozambican suppliers, contractors and labour during execution of the project.

Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Wheeler’s Group President for Asia, Middle East, Africa & Southern Europe said:

“This award reinforces Amec Foster Wheeler’s position as a leading Oil & Gas service provider in Mozambique. We have delivered many projects for Sasol and its partners in-country, including building the original Temane facility. For this project, we will deploy our extensive expertise to this development which will see further hydrocarbon resources produced to support Southern African growth.”

This project marks the first phase of the PSA development which covers a contract area of some 1,790 square kilometres and is central to Sasol’s development plans to drive its growth in Southern Africa.
