Front-End Engineering & Design (FEED) Capabilities

Fluor provides integrated solutions to Clients to manage their internal business drivers, using the expertise gained from providing front-end engineering and design (FEED) services to Clients in diverse industries, including oil and gas, power, and mining. Fluor has provided FEED services for several thousand major projects, including first-of-a-kind technologies, world scale mega projects, and licensor design packages. Fluor has extensive experience preparing lump sum bid packages and has many reference packages to facilitate completion of work in an expeditious timeframe.

Front-end engineering and design is defined as the work required to produce process and engineering documentation of sufficient quality and depth to adequately define the project requirements for detailed engineering, procurement and construction of facilities and to support a ±10 percent project cost estimate. This distinct project phase is typically used to:

Evaluate options that will improve the return on assets (ROA)

Conduct hazardous operations reviews Support internal funding requirements

Develop the engineering design packages that can be used to bid a lump sum EPC scope and / or provide the foundation for the detailed engineering phase

Prepare cost estimates for scope definition and for project funding

OptimEyes ® Delivers Client Value for Process Plant Facilities during Front End Design OptimEyes A MasterPlant Solution by Fluor, is a proprietary front end engineering tool for plot optimization and preliminary layout, used to quickly evaluate design options for cost optimization of process plant facility designs.

Used on engineering studies, pre-FEED and FEED activities, OptimEyes enables the rapid creation of conceptual 3D plant models along with automated routing, equipment creation, and material quantity downloads. Fluor’s multi-disciplinary design teams are able to quickly create and evaluate multiple “what-if” scenarios, selecting and refining for the optimum facility arrangement.

FEED (Front End Engineering Design)

Front-End Engineering & Design (FEED) Capabilities Fluor provides integrated solutions to Clients to manage their internal

FEED (Front End Engineering Design) means Basic Engineering which is conducted after completion of Conceptual Design or Feasibility Study. At this stage, before start of E.P.C (Engineering, Procurement and Construction), various studies take place to figure out technical issues and estimate rough investment cost. This work is normally contracted to EPC Contractor such as Chiyoda, as an optional contract

or through bidding. The product of the activity is called “FEED Package” which amounts up to dozens of files and will be the basis of

bidding for EPC Contract.

It is important to reflect client’s intentions and project specific requirements in to the FEED Package without fail, in order to avoid significant change during EPC Phase. The FEED Work takes about 1 year in case of large sized project such as LNG plant. As it is essential to maintain close communication with client, it became a common practice that client stations at Contractor’s office during the work execution.

Make the most of Experiences through Plant Construction

Chiyoda can make the most of his vast experiences gained through plant construction. Reliable FEED which causes little change during E.P.C. Phase is the key to successful Project.

A great deal of Database and Effective Engineering Tools

Chiyoda has a great deal of Database and Effective Engineering Tools. With the help of these arms, reliable FEED can be conducted in an efficient manner.

Mutual Respect between Client

It is very important for good FEED Work to establish mutual trust and respect and maintain good communication. There is a culture in Chiyoda which enables to establish good communication and establish mutual trust and respect, gained through numbers of FEED Works till now.

FEED - Front End Engineering Design

FEED stands for Front End Engineering Design. The FEED is basic engineering which comes after the Conceptual design or Feasibility study. The FEED design focuses the technical requirements as well as rough investment cost for the project. The FEED can be divided into seperate packages covering different portions of the project. The FEED package is used as the basis for bidding the Execution Phase Contracts (EPC, EPCI, etc) and is used as the design basis.

A good FEED will reflect all the clients project specific requirements and avoid significant changes during the execution phase. FEED Contracts usually take around 1 year to complete for larger sized projects. During the FEED phase there is close communication between Project Owners and Operators and the Engineering Contractor to work up the project specific requirements.

Basic and detailed engineering Prior to the construction of an industrial plant, engineering studies are needed
Basic and detailed engineering
Prior to the construction of an industrial plant, engineering studies are needed involving several engineering
specialties such as:
• process
• pressure vessels
• rotating equipment
• instrumentation
• electrical facilities
• computing,
• piping, civil works
• cost control and scheduling
All these activities are covered and fully managed by the experienced Consulting Engineering firms.
According to the nature of a project, engineering studies will include all or part of the following steps:
Basic Engineering Design (BED) covering:
• Conceptual process studies (material balances, process flow sheets…) and preliminary plot plan.
• Preliminary Piping and Instrument Diagrams.
• Definition and sizing of main equipment resulting in process specifications.
• Specification of effluents.
• Definition of control and safety devices.
• And, generally speaking, all the basic studies required supporting a Basic Engineering Design Package (BEDP)
containing all data needed by a competent contractor to perform the Detail Engineering.
These basic engineering studies may consist of consolidating a Process Package initiated by an external process
Front End Engineering Design (FEED) covering:
• Mechanical data sheets of the main equipment, starting from the process specifications issued during the BED
and incorporating the specific requirements of codes and standards to be applied to the project in question.
• Thermal rating of heat exchangers.
• Preparation of tender packages for the main equipment.
• Development of process and utility Piping and Instrument Diagrams released for detail engineering.
• Development of detailed plot plans and hazardous areas.
• Elaboration of the main piping, instrument, electrical and civil works layouts.
• And, generally speaking, all the studies to be performed before ordering the main equipment.
Detail Engineering, covering:
• Purchasing of equipment, main and bulk.
• Thermal rating of heat exchangers.
• Development of Piping and Instrument Diagrams released for construction.
• Development of detailed piping drawings, including isometrics and stress calculations.
• Development of detailed drawings related to instrumentation, electrical facilities and civil works.
• Management of vendor drawings.
• Cost and schedule control.
• Start-up procedures.
And, generally speaking, all the studies to be performed before construction of the plant.
