BP chooses Amec FW for Forties pipeline EPC

Amec Foster Wheeler has secured 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 North Sea's 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. John Pearson, Amec Foster Wheeler’s Group President for Northern Europe & CIS said: "We’re delighted to be supporting BP with this important contract which is vital for maintaining North Sea operations. This contract is a great example of how we are using our leading brownfield and onshore engineering experience and expertise to deliver the best solution for our client. We have been working with BP at Grangemouth since the 1970s and look forward to providing them with continued safe and efficient operations."
