Oil Refinery Tracks 2,000,000 Materials with Jovix ® Introduction Fluor and Jovix entered a five-year contract on deployment to a large grassroots refinery in Kazakhstan. The Future Growth and Wellhead Pressure Management Project (FGP-WPMP) increased crude oil production at the Tengiz Oil Field by about 260,000 barrels per day. FGP-WPMP had an initial estimated price tag of $36.8 billion, including $27.1 billion for facilities, $3.5 billion for wells and $6.2 billion for contingency and escalation. The project raised TCO's (TengizChevroil) total production to approximately 1 million barrels of oil equivalent per day. WPMP maximized the value of existing TCO facilities by extending the production plateau and keeping existing plants producing at full capacity. FGP used state-of-the- art sour gas injection technology, successfully developed and proven during TCO's prior expansion in 2008 that enhanced oil recovery. Jovix Scope Combined with Fluor's materials management system, MatMan, Jovix enhanced the site's materials management processes by increasing visibility into the supply chain through RFID, barcoding and rugged tablets. The Jovix deployment began in May 2017 with 500,000 RFID tags.
