BRUNEI Shell Petroleum Company Sdn Bhd (BSP), in support of its vision to be a competitive oil and gas company by 2020 is carrying out a rejuvenation programme to improve its asset reliability and availability.
BSP has recently partnered with Amec Foster Wheeler to work on the concept select, Front End Engineering Design (FEED), detailed design, construction, completions and commissioning, marine management, fabrication management, procurement and project management for this programme.

This will be combined with the company’s world class brownfield expertise, and presence in the region, as well as global delivery capability, to increase asset performance and integrity, maximising the client’s recovery from mature fields.
