WorleyParsons has been selected to provide engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services under a contract for the expansion of Colombia’s main oil pipeline for Oleoducto Central S.A. (OCENSA). The pipeline is 829 kilometres long and currently has capacity of approximately 610,000 barrels per day.
Under the contract, WorleyParsons will deliver EPCM services to help expand the current pipeline capacity by 135,000 barrels per day and help Colombia access its stranded crude oil. The P135 project will involve the addition of 3 new pump stations at different locations along the pipeline with modifications to 5 existing stations.
The services will be executed by WorleyParsons’ offices in Bogota and Houston.
Andrew Wood, Chief Executive Officer of WorleyParsons said "We understand the importance, the critical targets and challenges of this initiative and are extremely pleased with the opportunity to provide services that will help OCENSA achieve success on this nationally important project".
