Paris, June 4, 2013
Paris-based Technip, a world leader in the energy management industry, has won a contract for project management consultancy (PMC) services for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phase of the Karbala refinery in Iraq.
The award from SCOP, an oil projects company in Iraq’s Ministry of Oil, follows the front-end engineering design executed by Technip in 2010.
The scope of work will cover issue of enquiries for the EPC contract, bids clarification, evaluation and contracts finalisation with the EPC contractors in the first phase.
Phase 2 will include overall management of the EPC contract execution.
Technip’s operating center in Milton Keynes, UK will execute phase 1 of the project, which is scheduled to be completed in the second semester of 2013.
Riccardo Moizo, Technip’s senior vice president for PMC, stated: “We are delighted to have been awarded this project by SCOP and to participate in developing and enhancing Iraq’s refinery capabilities.”
“This is a significant contract for Technip’s newly created PMC business unit and we believe it will open up opportunities in the near future,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
