Front-End Engineering & Design (FEED) Capabilities
Fluor provides integrated solutions to Clients to manage their internal business drivers, using the expertise gained from providing front-end engineering and design (FEED) services to Clients in diverse industries, including oil and gas, power, and mining. Fluor has provided FEED services for several thousand major projects, including first-of-a-kind technologies, world scale mega projects, and licensor design packages. Fluor has extensive experience preparing lump sum bid packages and has many reference packages to facilitate completion of work in an expeditious timeframe.
Front-end engineering and design is defined as the work required to produce process and engineering documentation of sufficient quality and depth to adequately define the project requirements for detailed engineering, procurement and construction of facilities and to support a ±10 percent project cost estimate. This distinct project phase is typically used to:
- Evaluate options that will improve the return on assets (ROA)
- Conduct hazardous operations reviews
- Support internal funding requirements
- Develop the engineering design packages that can be used to bid a lump sum EPC scope and / or provide the foundation for the detailed engineering phase
- Prepare cost estimates for scope definition and for project funding
OptimEyes® Delivers Client Value for Process Plant Facilities during Front End Design
OptimEyes A MasterPlant Solution by Fluor, is a proprietary front end engineering tool for plot optimization and preliminary layout, used to quickly evaluate design options for cost optimization of process plant facility designs.
Used on engineering studies, pre-FEED and FEED activities, OptimEyes enables the rapid creation of conceptual 3D plant models along with automated routing, equipment creation, and material quantity downloads. Fluor’s multi-disciplinary design teams are able to quickly create and evaluate multiple “what-if” scenarios, selecting and refining for the optimum facility arrangement.
