Africa-focused multinational oil and gas company Tullow Oil has awarded a contract to Australian engineering company WorleyParsons to provide services for the foundation phase of the South Lokichar onshore oilfield development project in Kenya
According to Tullow, East Africa’s oilfield project comprises the development of the Ngamia and Amosing fields to produce an estimated 60,000 bpd of oil which will be transported to Lamu, on the coast, via a 900km export pipeline.
Under the terms of the contract, WorleyParsons will provide front-end engineering design (FEED) for the central processing facilities and will support Tullow Oil in the project delivery as part of an integrated project management team.
The services will be led by WorleyParsons’ London office with support from other WorleyParsons offices and Kenyan based service providers.
“We are delighted to be awarded this contract and we look forward to developing our relationship with Tullow Oil and increasing our business in Kenya,” said Andrew Wood, CEO of WorleyParsons.
In line with the growing momentum to boost Africa’s oil and gas industry, Kenya is rapidly developing its oil and gas infrastructure. Recently, Tullow Kenya BV has awarded Wood a front-end engineering design contract for the design of the proposed Lokichar to Lamu crude oil pipeline project located in Kenya. The Lokichar to Lamu crude oil pipeline project is being developed by the Pipeline Project Management Team, a consortium which includes Tullow Oil, Africa Oil and Total in partnership with the government of Kenya.
