Amec Foster Wheeler announces that it has been awarded a front end engineering design (FEED) contract by Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) to upgrade its Oil Gathering Centre GC-24.
This project continues Amec Foster Wheeler’s work with KOC on major projects since 2004, which has recently included three new Gathering Centres and strategic pipeline projects in North Kuwait.
Roberto Penno, Group President of Amec Foster Wheeler’s Asia Pacific, Middle East, Africa and Southern Europe business said “Kuwait Oil Company is one of our key customers and this further strengthening of our working partnership follows our success in delivering projects for them and management of the original GC-24 Project which was completed six months ahead of schedule”.
KOC is planning to increase oil production by up to 1 million barrels of oil per day by 2020 and to maintain this for 10 years. Critical to the expansion, this project will enhance the existing GC-24 facility, increasing capacity by 50,000 barrels of oil per day from the current level of 165,000 barrels of oil per day, as well as optimising existing facilities to cater for the expected high level of water in the mix of crude oil and gas.
