Fulkrum technical resources breaks ground with Mozambique contract
Fulkrum Technical Resources (FTR), a global provider of technical personnel specializing in QA/QC, inspection and vendor surveillance services to the energy industry, has announced a significant contract win in Mozambique, awarded by a major hydrocarbon exploration company.
Under the multi-year agreement, FTR will provide the ground-breaking LNG project with technical specialist and inspection services throughout the procurement and construction stages of the development.
Split into two phases, in-country and out-of-country, FTR’s technical specialist, subject matter experts and inspection personnel will support multiple workscopes including global supplier surveillance support throughout the procurement process, and QC surveillance during the execution of the onshore and offshore construction campaigns.
Brock Falkenhagen, FTR’s Regional Manager of the Americas, commented: “This is an outstanding contract win for us, and we are delighted to be working on this project to support the trail-blazing LNG operations in Mozambique.
“There has already been heavy investment in the development of Mozambican talent and workforce and we are keen to continue this positive progress. By 2022, Fulkrum’s in-country office will solely manage the project, employing primarily local personnel, which reflects the strategy to expand our capabilities in regions previously unexplored by FTR.”
Editorial Comment: The Future of FLNG: Less is More?
Global LNG export capacity is expected to increase by 45% between 2017 and 2022, to more than 400 metric MMtpy, with 90% of the new capacity coming from sanctioned projects in the U.S. and Australia. By 2050, this capacity is anticipated to exceed 700 MMtpy. Regasification capacity is anticipated to increase even more sharply.
Executive Viewpoint: Back to production: Where we’re going, we don’t need pipelines
What if a cost-effective way existed to extract and distribute natural gas, regardless of proximity to pipeline, and bring those assets back to production? What if the industry went in a direction that did not need pipelines? For those looking to monetize unproductive natural gas assets or bring unproductive wells back to production, it would be revolutionary.
