Foster Wheeler Ltd. announced that its UK-headquartered subsidiary, Foster Wheeler Energy Limited, has been awarded an engineering and materials supply contract by Woodside for two gas turbine exhaust waste heat recovery units for the processing train at its Pluto LNG Project in Western Australia.
The two identical units will recover energy from gas turbines used for power generation, to provide hot water for use elsewhere in the facility. The Foster Wheeler contract value for this project was not disclosed and was included in the company’s first-quarter 2008 bookings.
This latest contract follows an award from Woodside, included in the company’s 2007 bookings, for a larger waste heat recovery unit for the Pluto LNG Project. Foster Wheeler has previously supplied similar units for the Phase IV and V expansions of the Woodside-operated North West Shelf LNG facility in Karratha, Western Australia.
The engineering, procurement and construction management of the Pluto LNG Project is being executed by a Foster Wheeler-led joint venture and includes a single LNG production train with forecast production of 4.3 million tonnes of LNG per year. The contract also covers a fractionation unit, an acid gas recovery unit, gas purification units, tank storage facilities, a boil-off gas compressor, loading berths, gas turbine power generation units and utilities. First gas is scheduled for production at the end of 2010.
