Foster Wheeler AG (Nasdaq: FWLT) has been awarded a contract by Aibel AS for the provision of detailed design engineering services to support Aibel, which has been appointed by Statoil (NYSE:STO) as the main engineering, procurement and construction contractor for the Karsto Development Project (KDP) 2013 for the Karsto and Kollsnes oil and gas processing plants in Norway. 

The Foster Wheeler contract value for this project was not disclosed. A small initial release of work was included in the company’s second-quarter bookings. The majority of Foster Wheeler’s work scope will be included in company’s third quarter 2011 bookings.

There are two additional scopes of work included as options under the KDP 2013 contract: a boiler upgrade project and hydrogen sulfide removal at Karsto. This work has not yet been released and is dependent on Statoil choosing to exercise the options.
