Amec Foster Wheeler wins Kuwait PIC deal
KUWAIT, March 11, 2017
Amec Foster Wheeler said it has been awarded a contract by Petrochemical Industries Company (PIC), a subsidiary of the Kuwait Petroleum Company (KPC), for the integration project between its Olefins III, Aromatics II and Zour Refinery in Kuwait.
The contract covers front-end engineering design (Feed) leading to project management consultancy (PMC) for the project.
The six-year contract builds on Amec Foster Wheeler's significant expertise in petrochemicals and refinery integration, alongside the impressive track record of delivering PMC services to KPC companies in Kuwait.
The new petrochemical facility will be integrated with the new Al Zour 615,000-barrels-per-day refinery, which will be one of the largest refineries in the region.
The company also clinched a major contract from Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) for the rejuvenation of assets in Brunei, said the statement from Amec Foster Wheeler.
The work includes concept, Feed, detailed design, construction, completions and commissioning, marine management, fabrication management, procurement, and project management.
John Pearson, Amec Foster Wheeler's president for Oil, Gas & Chemicals, said: "These award reflects our expertise, as well as our successful track record in large, complex Feeds, and project management. It is directly aligned to our strategy of extending from Feed into later phase scopes in downstream, and to building on our existing strength in chemicals."
"I am also delighted that this adds to our existing portfolio of work we are delivering for KPC's group of companies, with multiple PMC contracts underway," he added.
On the BSP contract, Pearson said: "We are bringing together Amec Foster Wheeler's unique combination of brownfield expertise, 'More 4 Less' methodology, global capabilities, and long-term customer relationships to maximise the value of Brunei Shell Petroleum's assets in Brunei."
The contract will run for five years from March 2017, with two one-year options to extend, and includes Brunei Shell Petroleum's oil and gas assets in the South China Sea, he added.-TradreArabia News Service
