Fluor Corporation (NYSE:FLR) was awarded the Project Hijau Gasoil Phase-1 by Shell Refining Company FOM Malaysia (NYSE:RDS-A) (NYSE:RDS-B).
The project comprises a new 6,000 tonnes-per-day diesel processing unit located in Port Dickson, Malaysia. Fluor will perform engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services as a follow-on scope of work to its previous front-end engineering and design (FEED) work.
Fluor will recognize the undisclosed award value in the third quarter of 2010.
“This important new project award from Shell follows our successfully completed FEED work on Hijau,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group. “Southeast Asia is a strategic geography for both Shell and Fluor, and this EPCM project will further solidify our strength in this area.”
The project is expected to peak at approximately 650 craft and professional employees with work performed from Fluor’s Manila, the Philippines; Haarlem, the Netherlands offices; and the Kuala Lumpur project site.
