Fluor Corporation was selected by BP Trinidad and Tobago to perform the front-end engineering and design (FEED) for the Cassia Compression Project off the east coast of Trinidad and Tobago.
Fluor’s scope of work includes the design of a new offshore gas compression platform, new connecting bridge and modifications to the existing Cassia hub. The platform will compress gas produced from the existing Cassia platforms.
FEED activities are expected to be completed in 2017 with first gas expected in 2020.
Fluor’s Stork division currently provides maintenance, modification and asset integrity services to BP’s offshore assets.
“As the project advances, Fluor will use its integrated solution model to support the project. Benefits of this model include an improved design through fabrication and maintenance team engagement in the design process, reduced costs through the global sourcing of major equipment and improved execution through Fluor and Stork’s extensive in-country experience and use of local resources,” said John Harrower, executive director of offshore operations for Fluor.
