Fluor has been awarded a contract by Chevron Neftegaz—one of three project managers engaged by the Caspian Pipeline Consortium—for its recently announced expansion project.
Fluor will provide project services for the marine terminal and supervisory control and data system (SCADA) portions of the Caspian Pipeline Expansion project. The pipeline begins in western Kazakhstan and runs 1,510 km west to the terminal in Novorossiysk, Russia, on the Black Sea. Fluor booked $100 million into backlog in the second quarter.
“This pipeline expansion is a vital first step to pave the way for numerous additional crude oil production expansion projects in the region,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s Energy & Chemicals Group.
As the project services contractor, Fluor is providing oversight assistance for the deepwater marine terminal expansion in Novorossiysk as well as the SCADA system for the entire pipeline. The project is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2014.
