25 February 2016: Fluor Consortium Delivers Natural Gas Development Project in Brazil

25 February 2016

Fluor Corporation has reported that its consortium has met substantial completion on the Gavião Branco facility in the state of Maranhão, Brazil, turning it over to Parnaíba Gás Natural (PGN), Brazil’s leading private gas exploration and production company.

The consortium performed basic and detailed engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and start-up of an 8.5 million-cubic-meters-per-day gas gathering system in the Gavião Branco field, as well as a 70-kilometer-gas pipeline, under a demanding 12-month schedule. The consortium included Fluor; Construcap CCPS Engenharia e Comércio S.A. (Construcap), the consortium leader; and CFPS Engenharia e Projetos S.A. (CFPS), a joint venture of Fluor and Construcap.

The consortium significantly optimized the facility’s design to reduce capital investment costs, while maintaining the original completion date. The project brings the Gavião Branco field into commercial operation, enables the tie-in of the Gavião Branco Sudeste field in the first quarter of 2016 and will provide the tie-in point for Gavião Caboclo and Gavião Branco Norte in the future.

Based on the results of this project, PGN has retained the consortium to deliver master planning services for future developments in the Parnaíba Basin.
