Wood awarded contract Kenyan crude oil pipeline

Wood has been awarded a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for a proposed crude oil pipeline project in Kenya.

The project is being delivered by a consortium – the Pipeline Project Management Team – comprising Tullow Oil, Africa Oil and Total in partnership with the Government of Kenya.

The contract, which was awarded by Tullow Kenya BV, is for the design of a pipeline that will run from the South Lokichar basin to Lamu Port in Kenya, exporting waxy crude oil.

Under the contract, Wood’s subsea and export systems team, with support from its capital projects team, will deliver the first phase of FEED services, setting the technical requirements and estimating the installed cost of the system.

Wood has been awarded the initial phase of a front-end engineering design contract (FEED) by Tullow Kenya BV for the design of the proposed Lokichar to Lamu Crude Oil Pipeline project located in Kenya.

“We are delighted to be working with the Pipeline Project Management Team on this project which leverages Wood’s broad capabilities,” Wood Specialist Technical Solutions CEO Bob MacDonald said.

“Our independent onshore pipeline engineering expertise combined with the latest project delivery technology will allow us to challenge the design, working to reduce cost and boost efficiencies.”
