Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a pre-FEED contract by the government of Timor-Leste for the proposed Beaço LNG plant.
The scope of the pre-FEED contract, which is worth approximately US$3.8 million, includes concept selection studies, development of technical design, development of procurement and construction strategies, project implementation plans, capital cost estimate and schedule for the overall project.
The work will be carried out in close consultation with TIMOR GAP, the country’s National Oil Company. TIMOR GAP is currently managing the implementation of Tasi Mane Project consisting of three areas of development along the country’s southern coast, including the Beaço LNG Plant.
The contract will be delivered from Amec Foster Wheeler’s LNG centre in Reading, UK, working with its team in Malaysia.
Roberto Penno, Amec Foster Wheeler’s Group President for Asia, Middle East, Africa & Southern Europe, commented: “I am pleased that our LNG expertise and project delivery skills are helping to move forward a project which will contribute to the overall development of Timor-Leste. Our LNG Centre of Excellence in the UK will work closely with our in-country teams to deliver this work safely and sustainably.”
