In April 2004, a research team comprising of staff from Engineers Against Poverty and the Overseas Development Institute visited the operations of an engineering services contractor, AMEC plc, in the Philippines and Australia. The purpose of the visit was to review AMEC's Oil and Gas South East Asia operations and look in depth at its joint venture with Fluor Corporation, the Fluor-AMEC asset support contract for the Philippines 'Malampaya' gas-to-power project operated by Shell Philippines. The research and visits learnt how AMEC is approaching issues of social performance across the region. Reccomendations are offered to the Fluor-AMEC joint venture on ways to strengthen the social performance of the Malampaya project.
