BP Relationship Strengthened through Environmental and Consulting Services MSAs

BP’s two Master Service Agreements (MSAs) pre-quality WorleyParsons to support BP anywhere in the world

WorleyParsons has been providing project delivery services to BP for over 30 years and currently has three long-term relationship-based global agreements in place.

Customer: BP Remediation Management
Project: Environmental Services Master Services Agreements
Location: North America and Most of World

In the period 2007 to 2009 WorleyParsons and INTECSEA were selected by BP as one of three preferred global contractors in BP’s effort to build strategic relationships with fewer key suppliers, thus maximizing standardization for the purpose of delivering safer high-quality designs and achieving a higher efficiency.

“It’s important that we can work with a company where we can trust its management systems, its processes, and its connectivity globally; that’s the type of company we want to work with”, says Neil Shaw, BP’s Chief Operating Officer, Projects, “And equally, we want to reciprocate so that our suppliers experience the same BP in one part of the world to another part of the world.”

Building on this relationship over the past two years, BP awarded WorleyParsons four environmental services framework agreements—Windmill (North America) and Atlas (Rest of World) for broad environmental and consulting services, and Lighthouse (North America and Rest of World) for oil spill planning and response. Collectively these are the equivalent of two global master services agreements (MSAs) that pre-qualify WorleyParsons to support BP anywhere in the world.

WorleyParsons is leveraging its global reach to deliver projects within these MSAs, as each work release assignment will be locally managed with global and regional expertise available to support the efforts. Each MSA has a framework of common processes, procedures, templates, and reporting for health, safety, security and environment, quality and social performance excellence. This strategy ensures consistent performance along with consolidated reporting and metrics, while embedding and applying BP’s policies and standards.

These awards follow 20 years of supporting BP in managing remediation programs in Canada. The consulting and planning MSAs now put WorleyParsons in a position to leverage our relationship and continue supporting BP through oil spill preparedness and response, crisis and continuity management planning, restoration and remediation services on a global basis.

“As a customer, you don’t forget when a contractor is really able to support you; when a partnership goes beyond the transactional nature of a contract to build up a relationship that helps both companies perform better. Performance is actually quite a broad concept of the quality of services, the quality of resources and the competitiveness of the deal, but there is also an intangible element that allows us to develop a different relationship based on integration at the strategic level,” says Neil Shaw.“As a customer, you don’t forget when a contractor is really able to support you; when a partnership goes beyond the transactional nature of a contract to build up a relationship that helps both companies perform better.

Integrated Rosebank Team brings Improved Efficiencies for Chevron

Chevron’s Rosebank Development,Northwest of Shetland Islands

WorleyParsons Group is dedicated to bringing our customers value through strategic partnerships and long-term relationships, as seen through our Strategic Contractor Relationship (SCR) with Chevron.

Customer: Chevron North Sea Limited
Project: Rosebank Development
Location: West of Shetlands, United Kingdom

We have more than 40 years of experience working with Chevron and have executed their projects on six continents over the last five years.

In October 2010, WorleyParsons Group was contracted to complete an extensive pre-FEED of Chevron’s Rosebank development, a deepwater facility located in approximately 1,130 meters of water in the harsh environment northwest of the Shetland Islands. WorleyParsons and INTECSEA seamlessly integrated their respective analytical capabilities and technical expertise to successfully deliver pre-FEED for the full field facilities including topside, hull, marine, mooring, subsea and gas export systems. This success enabled WorleyParsons to effectively bid and win the FEED in a competitive tender, and work on the FEED started in July 2012. The FEED scope included topside, hull, marine systems, mooring, and riser systems along with associated subsea systems.

Rosebank FEED execution strategy was further enhanced by employing a “One Team” approach by co-locating all team members in a single office – Chevron, WorleyParsons and INTECSEA. This integrated project execution approach demonstrated increased efficiencies by reducing external interfaces, review cycles and decision making timescales, allowing for accelerated FEED delivery while maintaining the highest levels of safety and quality.

Chevron’s Rosebank Facilities project manager, Alan Scott commented, “On the Rosebank project, Chevron has realized cost and schedule savings from WorleyParsons’ integrated execution through improved efficiency and fewer interfaces. The co-located team has benefitted from improved communications and increased collaboration, which are essential for ensuring schedule preservation.”

The close alignment and collaboration between Chevron and WorleyParsons and our proven ability to ensure high-quality integrated design delivery within a tight schedule has led to our consideration as the potential Detail Design and Procurement sub-contractor for the execution phase of the project.

Celanese Fairway Methanol Project

Celanese Project

An abundance of low cost natural gas feedstocks in the U.S. has resulted in a competitive advantage for chemical manufacturers such as Celanese Corporation, which has invested in a new1.3 million ton per annum methanol production facility.

The methanol will be used as feedstock to support Celanese’s operations at its integrated acetyls chemical plant in Clear Lake, Texas.

The project, known as Fairway Methanol, will expand the Celanese Clear Lake operations to include the strategic upstream production of methanol. The attractive economics of natural gas in the U.S. Gulf Coast region, combined with existing infrastructure and an outstanding strategic partner in Mitsui & Co., Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan, provides Celanese with this unique growth opportunity. The methanol unit is scheduled to begin operations in mid-2015.

Due to the successful earlier completion of the FEED by WorleyParsons, our Houston office has commenced the execution of the EPCM phase with workshare support from Beijing for the Inside Battery Limits (ISBL) engineering and procurement planning. To ensure project continuation and efficiency in delivery, a joint WorleyParsons/Celanese ‘task force’ was established with a clear focus to optimize the application of in-depth knowledge and understanding by the team, take advantage of strong local experience with close proximity to the site, and most importantly to successfully leverage our 10-year, long-standing relationship with Celanese via our China operations, where we will continue to deliver value and innovation to the Fairway Methanol project.

Hydro Power and Environment in Brazil


Over the past 50 years, CNEC WorleyParsons has been prominently involved in most of the hydroelectric power plant projects in South America, especially in Brazil.

Over the past 50 years, CNEC WorleyParsons has been prominently involved in most of the hydroelectric power plant projects in South America, especially in Brazil. The services cover the entire lifecycle of projects since the river basin inventory, feasibility studies, environmental impact assessment, cost estimating as part of our Select business line, passing through basic and detail design, the implementation of social and environmental mitigation programs and PCM into our Deliver phase and maintaining our Improve business supporting our customers in the operation and maintenance phase with environmental monitoring and refurbishment projects.

We are proud to follow projects during the entire lifecycle as a result of our successful deliverables. That is the case of our current 4-year contract in Brazil that includes the implementation and management of 43 social and environmental mitigation programs for the Belo Monte Hydroelectric Power Plant, including resettlement plan; urban and rural infrastructure recovery plan; support for leisure and tourism activities; environmental education program; support program for neighbouring communities and the family subsistence production; public health plan; social compensation; support for commercial activities and services affected beyond others.

The Belo Monte Hydroelectric Plant has a planned installed capacity of 11,233 megawatts (MW) that makes it the second largest hydroelectric dam in Brazil and the third largest Hydro development in the world behind the Three Gorges (China) and Itaipu (Brazil-Paraguay) Dams.

CNEC WorleyParsons has been involved with this project since the 1980s with the inventory and feasibility studies. From 2005 through 2010 it played a significant role in the overall project approval managing a review of the Inventory Studies, the Integrated Environmental Assessment of the Xingu river basin, an Environmental, Social and Health Impact Assessment (ESHIA), Social Communication Plan and Indigenous People Studies, which met the requirements of several Brazilian Agencies such as IBAMA and FUNAI, Environmental Agency and Indigenous People Agency, respectively.

Between 2010 and 2011, WorleyParsons supported the customer to grant the Installation License with a contract that included detailing social and economic mitigation programs envisaged in the Environmental, Social and Health Impact Assessment (ESHIA) and provided elements to make the installation of the construction site and supporting infrastructure possible.

The ongoing engagement in the Belo Monte project is a testimony to the skill and capability of our CNEC WorleyParsons team and the value that has been provided to the client, environmental, and community stakeholders over the last 8 years.

Water is an integral part of our customer’s operations with significant quantities of water managed through the asset life-cycle. It is becoming increasingly important to deliver water management in an integrated way to maximize efficiency and reduce project costs and risks.

Water is an integral part of our customer’s operations with significant quantities of water managed through the asset life-cycle. It is becoming increasingly important to deliver water management in an integrated way to maximize efficiency and reduce project costs and risks.

Total Water Solutions combines in-house water engineering and resource specialists with WorleyParsons’ understanding of hydrocarbon, mining and power industry expectations. Our customers are requiring more demanding, innovative and holistic water solutions across their business lines to continue meeting performance standards. More operators are looking to saline sources and greater re-use and recycling of produced water and wastewater.

Sourcing reliable water supplies, gaining and maintaining the social and environmental licenses to employ this key resource, increasing water use efficiency, selecting between treatment options and determining the optimal disposal schemes are some of the challenging water issues facing our customers today.

For our mining customers this can include the provision of a full delivery capability (engineering, procurement, construction and operation). For conventional and unconventional oil and gas developments, water supply for reservoir stimulation or hydraulic fracturing and the treatment and disposal of the large volumes of produced water are critical considerations. Both sectors require expertise for water infrastructure and total water management practices that adequately satisfy regulatory requirements and thorough community scrutiny.

Our involvement with BP Khazzan’s tight gas project in Oman is an example of applying the Total Water Solutions approach. This flagship unconventional gas project for BP, designed to use more than 300 gas wells with gas production targeted at 1200mscfu makes this one of the largest standalone unconventional gas projects in the world and one that will be established in a remote, hyper arid setting with virtually no existing infrastructure. WorleyParsons led the appraisal, options selection and FEED into execution for all water systems and were able to develop an integrated solution for wastewater, source water, treatment, field distribution and control. The selected water system represents the optimum for efficiency, reliability, sustainability, cost and engineering factors. The scope included hydrogeological investigations and modeling, desalination, treatment technology review, water systems modeling, reuse, re-injection, disposal and establishment of project water management and monitoring systems. By building an integrated water management team we could offer BP integrated solution support for full field development and exploration challenges.
