Kuwait Oil Company Project Management Consulting Contract

In 2013, Kuwait Oil Company (KOC) awarded Fluor a five-year Project Management Consulting (PMC) contract for several projects and upstream facilities such as booster stations, gathering centers and pipelines. This is the third KOC award since 2003 for Fluor to continue performing in the country-wide PMC role. Fluor's office in Farnborough, UK is providing front-end engineering and design (FEED), and PMC services are being provided from Fluor's offices in Kuwait.
