Shale gas/coal seam gas

Amec Foster Wheeler has the right technical expertise and project execution capability to develop and deliver the right solution for unconventional gas assets.
Our shale gas and tight gas experience includes:

  • Conceptual and detailed engineering;

Our experience in gas monetization options such as GTL and LNG is extensive.

Our experience in coal-bed methane includes working with our clients’ sub-surface teams to develop an optimised field development plan that minimises surface facility cost while giving good operational flexibility and recovery.
We recognise the challenges in designing gathering systems with the typically low wellhead flowing pressures from coal-bed methane reservoirs and our models have been validated against actual brownfield hydraulic data and confirmed by third party review.
We are also experienced in the injection of coal-bed methane gas into conventional natural gas reservoirs for storage, and in the removal of heavy hydrocarbon contaminants from the residual natural gas.

With our leading LNG liquefaction track record, we are one of a handful of contractors capable of designing and delivering a complete solution, encompassing your upstream asset and gas monetization solution.
