- One-year EPC contract
- New refrigeration plant to meet EU regulations
- Maintains efficient operations across the Forties Pipeline System
Amec Foster Wheeler announces today that it has been awarded a one-year £125 million Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract by BP to build a new refrigeration plant that will maintain efficient operations across the Forties Pipeline System.
The contract is for BP’s Refrigerated Liquid Petroleum Gas (RLPG) site in Grangemouth, Scotland. It is part of the company’s Kinneil Liquid Petroleum Gas (KLPG) Chilldown Project.
The contract was awarded under Amec Foster Wheeler’s global agreement with BP to provide it with engineering and project management services for the development of onshore facilities around the world. For the Chilldown Project, Amec Foster Wheeler will provide engineering, installation, project, construction and supply chain management services. qedi, Amec Foster Wheeler’s completions and commissioning specialist, will provide commissioning support.
The RLPG Plant currently operates with R22, a colourless, refrigerant gas. EU legislation requires the replacement of R22 and Amec Foster Wheeler provided the conceptual design study identifying R410a as a suitable more environmentally friendly and efficient replacement refrigerant. Without RLPG refrigeration, the Forties Pipeline System would be unable to operate at current operational levels.
