Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Klaipedos Nafta AB, Lithuania's state-owned oil company, to provide engineering and business support services for a new floating liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminal in Klaipeda, Lithuania. Fluor booked the undisclosed contract value in the second quarter of 2011.

Under the contract, Fluor will provide Klaipedos Nafta with engineering, technical, risk management, safety and environmental advisory services. As the lead advisor, Fluor will prepare the technical development plan and assist in selecting technologies, as well as developing a business plan for the terminal.

"Fluor is pleased to serve as an advisor to Klaipedos Nafta's development phase for a new LNG terminal in Klaipeda," said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor's Energy & Chemicals Group.
