Compressors Foster Wheeler Provides Engineering for Sasol in Mozambique
A subsidiary of Foster Wheeler will provide engineering services for a low pressure compression project at Sasol’s Central Processing Facility (CPF) in Temane, Mozambique.
Maputo/Mozambique – “We first worked with SPI in Mozambique in 2000, when we developed the basic design and engineering package for the original Temane Field Development, the first major upstream development in Mozambique,” said Umberto della Sala, President and Chief Operating Officer of Foster Wheeler. “We were subsequently awarded the EPCm contract for this project, which project we safely and successfully completed in 2004, with significant development and use of local labour, subcontractors and suppliers. We have gone on to work with SPI on the further development of its gas assets and look forward to adding this latest award to our list of project delivery successes in Africa.”
Engineering Scope Provision of Gas Turbine Powered Compressors
Foster Wheeler’s scope of work includes provision and procurement of gas turbine-driven low pressure compressors plus auxiliary equipment, including inlet gas scrubbing equipment and discharge air coolers, a new substation, including high voltage switchgear and transformers, modifications to an existing substation, additional instrument air and nitrogen facilities, and the expansion of the distributed control system to accommodate the new facilities. The objective of the project is to enable the Temane CPF to maintain the design throughput and pressure as the gas field declines. The new facilities are scheduled to be ready for commissioning during the fourth quarter of 2014.
