Foster Wheeler Ltd. (Nasdaq: FWLT) announced today that its subsidiary, Foster Wheeler E&C Malaysia Sdn Bhd, and its partner, OGP Technical Services Sdn Bhd, have been awarded a contract by Malaysia LNG Dua Sdn Bhd (MLNG Dua), a PETRONAS subsidiary, to execute the front-end engineering design (FEED) and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phases of a project to debottleneck production capacity at the existing MLNG Dua LNG facility at Bintulu, East Malaysia. The Foster Wheeler contract value was not disclosed and the project was included in the company's third-quarter 2005 bookings.

The MLNG Dua plant facility is part of Malaysia's PETRONAS LNG Complex located in Bintulu, Sarawak. The LNG Complex comprises MLNG Satu (completed in 1983), MLNG Dua (1995) and MLNG Tiga (2003) plants. The MLNG Satu and MLNG Dua plant facilities, each comprising three independent process trains, are capable of delivering 7.6 and 7.8 million metric tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG, respectively. The expansion of the complex in 2003 with MLNG Tiga added two more trains, bringing the total capacity to about 23 million mtpa. The three plants are being operated as one integrated site, which is currently the world's largest LNG producer at a single location.

"We were selected by MLNG Dua to lead and implement this strategic project due to our technical expertise in LNG and our in-depth knowledge, developed over the last ten years, of both the MLNG Tiga and Dua LNG facilities," said Roberto Penno, senior vice president, global sales & marketing, and director, Foster Wheeler E&C Malaysia Sdn Bhd. "We were involved in both developments, which were three-train expansions at the existing LNG facility. This award further enhances our position in the LNG liquefaction business, a strategic market for Foster Wheeler, where we have proven specialist technical and project execution expertise."

Foster Wheeler will lead the debottlenecking of the MLNG Dua facility, which will increase LNG production capacity by 1.3 million mtpa from 7.8 million mtpa. Work on each train will be timed to coincide with planned shutdown periods. The project is scheduled for overall completion in October 2009.
