National Gas Company of Trinidad & Tobago Limited
Point Lisas, Trinidad and Tobago

BUD Natural Gas Pipeline

Fluor provided preliminary and detailed engineering / design, procurement assistance, and construction management on the new pipeline and related onshore gas / liquid receiving facilities for the National Gas Company (NGC) of Trinidad & Tobago.

The new facilities increased NGC's overall gas pipeline network capacity. The pipeline is on the southeast coast of Trinidad.

Client's Challenge

The project consisted of 65 kilometers of offshore 36-inch gas pipeline, starting at the foot of a riser on the Cassia B platform belonging to BP Trinidad and Tobago (bpTT).

New onshore gas/liquid receiving facilities, including an accumulator station, were to be built adjacent to an existing 30-inch pipeline facility at Abyssinia.

Fluor's Solution

In a joint venture with Summit Engineering, a Trinidadian company, Fluor was responsible for managing all aspects of the project, which included quality assurance, strategic planning, monitoring of cost and progress, and periodic reporting to NGC.

Fluor conducted preliminary engineering to determine the most economically and technically feasible alternative to expand the pipeline system and to meet new throughput requirements. The project encompassed both the pipeline and the onshore receiving facilities. Fluor also provided procurement assistance and construction management services.


The pipeline and new facility increased NGC's gas capacity by 2 million standard cubic feet per day.
