Fulkrum technical resources breaks ground with Mozambique contract
Fulkrum Technical Resources (FTR), a global provider of technical personnel specializing in QA/QC, inspection and vendor surveillance services to the energy industry, has announced a significant contract win in Mozambique, awarded by a major hydrocarbon exploration company.
Under the multi-year agreement, FTR will provide the ground-breaking LNG project with technical specialist and inspection services throughout the procurement and construction stages of the development.
Split into two phases, in-country and out-of-country, FTR’s technical specialist, subject matter experts and inspection personnel will support multiple workscopes including global supplier surveillance support throughout the procurement process, and QC surveillance during the execution of the onshore and offshore construction campaigns.
Brock Falkenhagen, FTR’s Regional Manager of the Americas, commented: “This is an outstanding contract win for us, and we are delighted to be working on this project to support the trail-blazing LNG operations in Mozambique.
“There has already been heavy investment in the development of Mozambican talent and workforce and we are keen to continue this positive progress. By 2022, Fulkrum’s in-country office will solely manage the project, employing primarily local personnel, which reflects the strategy to expand our capabilities in regions previously unexplored by FTR.”

Corrosion Control for Gas Treating Amines: Technology Leads to Increased Amine Unit Efficiency
Accelerated basin drilling activities combined with increased fugitive gas emission capture technologies have increased trace oxygen levels in midstream natural gas. Oxygen present in concentrations even as low 30-50 ppm will cause costly corrosion-related problems in plant operations and processing equipment. One area in the plant most affected by oxygen is the amine unit. Oxygen will degrade MDEA-blended amines to corrosive amino acids and heat-stable amine salts.
Learn how a new technology from BASF combined with innovation from Nalco Water can increase amine efficiency and reduce costs associated with corrosion. This new technology will inhibit the degradation of amines from oxygen attack and control corrosion in process gas, while stabilizing the amine from degradation into bicine and other heat-stable amine salts. Together with Nalco Water’s real-time amine corrosion control program, have been proven to both mitigate oxygen degradation of amine and reduce the overall corrosivity of amine units.
