Fluor Awarded Gas Storage Contract in The Netherlands

Fluor Fluor Corporation was today awarded a contract by TAQA Energy B.V., a subsidiary of the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC, for engineering, procurement and construction management services (EPCM) for its Bergermeer Gas Storage project in the North Holland province of The Netherlands.

"Fluor will assist TAQA in its ambition to provide Europe with energy security through this strategically important underground gas storage project," said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor's Energy & Chemicals Group. "With the project site located near our Haarlem operations center, we expect to serve our client in a true teamwork environment throughout the project duration."

Fluor began engineering and design work in August 2009 and is responsible for the EPCM of the gas compression and treatment facility as well as modifications to the well site. The facility will be designed to minimize hydrocarbon and carbon dioxide emissions. Fluor's participation in the project is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2013. Work related to the gas treatment facility project will be performed by about 200 professionals located in Fluor's Haarlem operations center.

The gas treatment and compression facility is an integral part of the Bergermeer Gas Storage project. Sustainable development is the basis for the realization of the project and TAQA expects to apply "best available technology" as a standard for this project.
