Wood Awarded FEED Contract for Lokichar to Lamu Crude Oil Pipeline

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.

The proposed pipeline will be used to export waxy crude oil from oil field  developments in the South Lokichar basin to Lamu port on Kenya’s coast.

Wood will provide the first phase of FEED services, setting the technical requirements and  estimating the installed cost for the pipeline system. The project is being led by the subsea  & export systems team with support from capital projects teams.

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

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.
