Foster Wheeler is a world-class international engineering and construction contractor, with a global track record for excellence in concept design, technology evaluation, master planning, front-end design, project management, engineering, procurement, construction management, commissioning and start-up, operations and maintenance, and training.
We specialise in the provision of operation and maintenance management services to improve safety, operational reliability and overall performance. Our experienced consultants help with planning and organising critical start-up activities, commissioning, maintenance management, performance improvement and training.
Oil and gas
We have a world-class track record in upstream oil and gas, LNG and GTL. Foster Wheeler first worked in Iraq in the 1930s, at Kirkuk where we pioneered crude oil stabilisation.
We have been involved in some of the world’s most significant onshore and offshore developments, such as the Haradh Gas Programme in Saudi Arabia, completed six months ahead of schedule and 25 per cent below budget. We are working on the Khuff offshore gas project for ADMA-OPCO and also GASCO’s onshore OGD-III and AGD-II projects, which will increase production of condensate and NGLs.
We have just completed the Temane Gas Field Development for Sasol in Mozambique: a gas processing facility plus infield flowlines and are in the final stages of Shell’s Goldeneye Gas plant in the UK and PTT’s GSP-5 gas separation plant in Thailand.
We engineered the world’s longest sour gas pipeline and the world’s longest sub-sea multi-phase pipeline.
With our JV partners, we successfully completed the two-train Oman LNG project, one of the fastest schedules ever achieved and one of the lowest cost producers. We are now working on a third train, Qalhat LNG.
We executed the pre-feasibility, feasibility and FEED for the 34,000 bpd Sasol/QP gas-to-liquids plant in Qatar, the first of the new generation of GTL plants, now under construction.
We have over 70 years refining experience and have successfully delivered a vast number of projects throughout the world; revamps, upgrades, expansions and world-scale new builds, this includes the lube oil plant and refinery expansion at Daura.
We offer a full refinery planning service, from initial market analysis and feasibility studies to the provision of an overall refinery ‘master’ plan. Since 1995, we have completed over 35 investment studies and 15 separate technology evaluations for refinery revamps, upgrades, grass-roots plants and petrochemical integration.
We can provide objective and independent technical and commercial evaluations for many different technologies. Our experience in fluidised catalytic cracking, hydrocracking and hydrotreatment technology is extensive and we bring ideas and experience from clean fuel projects executed in the US, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East. We operate licensor agreements with companies such as Shell Global Solutions and UOP.
We are the world leaders in hydrogen technology and own proprietary technology in residue upgrading: delayed coking, solvent deasphalting and visbreaking. We own the SydecSM process and are the market leader in delayed coking.
We have an excellent track record for delivering turnarounds, whether managing an entire operation or working as part of an integrated team or alliance.
Petrochemicals and chemicals
With over 60 years experience, we've completed thousands of projects from small process units to large integrated complexes. We can execute a successful chemical project anywhere, whether it's a grass-roots facility or an upgrade.
We have gained extensive experience in using our clients' technologies and in using more than 70 major processes.
Foster Wheeler has installed more than 150,000 megawatts of generating capacity worldwide. Our engineering capability and experience includes natural gas, solid and waste fuel projects, cogeneration plants, combined heat and power projects, and waste-to-energy facilities. Each of these plants has unique and complex systems and equipment, all engineered by Foster Wheeler.
We are the global leader in the design and manufacture of circulating fluidiser bed. Our technology is characterised by the ability to fire virtually any fuel with low emissions.
With many years’ experience, Foster Wheeler designs and supplies direct-fired furnaces for all types of refining, petrochemical, chemical, and oil and gas processes. We have supplied over 2,000 Foster Wheeler fired heaters and waste heat recovery units worldwide and have built a reputation for quality, value for money and performance.
We have designed and supplied some of the world’s most technically sophisticated heaters and waste heat boilers. Many of our heaters are still performing well beyond their original design life. We can also offer very cost-effective revamps and a complete spare parts service.
