The project is being undertaken on behalf of the Philippine government by the Service Contract 38 consortium composed of Shell Philippines Exploration B.V. (operator), Chevron Malampaya LLC, and Philippine National Oil Co.-Exploration Corp., according to a news release. Approximately 40% of the power for the main island of Luzon is generated by power plants using Malampaya gas. This new contract follows Fluor’s successful completion of the FEED contract for Phase 3. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the 3Q.
Fluor Offshore Solutions is providing detailed engineering, procurement, and selected construction support services as well as supporting the Shell team in managing the local fabricator, the release said.
Malampaya Phase 3 involves the design, fabrication, and installation of a new depletion compression platform that is linked by a bridge to the existing shallow water platform. Fluor is responsible for the engineering and procurement for the new depletion compression platform as well as modifications required on the shallow water platform, according to the release. Additional Fluor responsibilities include freight forwarding, material management for onshore fabrication and offshore installation, and preparation of work scopes for transportation and installation.
The project is being performed locally from Fluor’s full-service execution centers in Manila and Cebu as well as a local fabrication yard in the Philippines. The project is under way and is expected to be complete in 2015.
