Foster Wheeler wins South African gas contract

Foster Wheeler Ltd’s subsidiary, Foster Wheeler South Africa Ltd, has won an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract from Mossgas (Pty) Ltd, the state-owned gas-to-liquids producer, for a new USD 16.8 million low aromatics distillate plant in South Africa. The plant, which will be built on Mossgas’s existing premises at Mossel Bay, will produce 70,000 tons per annum of environmentally friendly low aromatic diesel and kerosene for the export market. The project will consist of a low aromatic distillate production facility and new tanks at the Mossgas refinery as well as at Mossgas’s Voorbaai tank farm. A 2km subsea pipeline from the tank farm will transport products to the company’s existing conventional buoy mooring for loading into tank ships. Foster Wheeler’s scope of work covers the detailed engineering and design and a basic engineering package provided by Mossgas for the storage tanks and sub-sea pipeline. Foster Wheeler will be responsible for the procurement of all equipment and materials associated with the new plant, and also for overall management of the project. The work will be executed in Foster Wheeler South Africa’s offices in Midrand.
