B&W Begins Work on Fluor & Worley Parsons Joint Venture
HOUSTON, Texas—April 24, 2017—B&W Energy Services was recently awarded a scope of work on the Future Growth Project in Tengiz, Kazakhstan. B&W is working with Fluor and Worley Parsons on this third generation mega-project, providing engineering services to map out the pre-commissioning cleaning activities required for startup. The engineering study began this month.
“B&W has a history in Kazakhstan, starting with the SGI and SGP projects in 2005-2008” Chris Oakley, Director of Sales & Engineering at B&W said, “and we’re ecstatic to be a part of the third major phase of this critical project with Fluor, Worley Parsons and Chevron.”
B&W Energy Services will provide an engineering study to help define the project pre-commissioning scope, map out steam blows, look for design modifications on the systems and plan resources. The engineering work is being performed at Flour’s office in Sugarland, Texas.
The joint venture, between Fluor & Worley Parsons, is working as part of an integrated team with TengizChevroil on the project that is the next expansion of the Tengiz oil field in western Kazakhstan. The Future Growth Project will use sour gas injection technology, successfully proven during TCO’s expansion project in 2007, to maximize Tengiz production capacity to approximately 42 million tons of oil per year.
During peak construction, the project is expected to employ approximately 20,000 construction workers. Project completion is scheduled for 2021 when first oil is expected to be achieved.
