    Fluor and AMEC awarded Enfield FPSO

    News // July 18, 2003
    Fluor Corporation has announced that as part of its alliance relationship with AMEC plc, it has received a notice of award for front-end engineering and design work and related services for development of a floating oil production facility off Australia's western coast. The value of the award for Fluor's portion of the current work was not disclosed, but the award includes the option for an extension for Fluor and AMEC to undertake the full engineering, procurement and construction management with a total contract value of $58 million.

    The Enfield floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) facility is part of a development by Woodside Energy Ltd of its Enfield Oil Field located off the North West Cape, West Australia.

    The facility - which will come on line in 2006 and will process up to 100,000 barrels of oil per day - will operate in water depths of approximately 2000 feet. It will have a storage capacity of up to one million barrels. The Enfield oil field was discovered in 1999, and the field oil reserves are assessed to be around 150 million barrels.

    The Enfield FPSO will be based on a tanker vessel to be constructed by Samsung Heavy Industries, of South Korea.
