Foster Wheeler AGs Global Engineering and Construction Group has a
feasibility study and front-end engineering design (FEED)
contract with the Iraqi Ministry of Oil for a new grassroots refinery at Nassiriya, Iraq. The
proposed refinery will have a capacity of 300,000 bpd.
Borouge has awarded several major
engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts
valued at approximately $2.6 billion for its Borouge 3 expansion project in Abu Dhabi, UAE. These
significant investments will expand the production capacity of
the plant to 4.5 million tpy by 2013, making it one of the
largest integrated polyolefins sites in the world. A contract
worth $1.25 billion was awarded to the joint venture consortium
of Tecnimont and Samsung
Engineering for the construction of two enhanced
polyethylene units and two enhanced polypropylene units, as
well as a contract worth $400 million for the construction of a
350,000-tpy low density polyethylene (LDPE) unit.The annual
capacity of the polyethylene units is 1 million tpy and the
polypropylene units capacity is 960,000 tpy.
Foster Wheeler AGs Global Engineering and Construction Group has
contracts with SOCAR & TURCAS Rafineri
A.Ş. (STRAS) for its planned grassroots refinery to be built within the
Petkim Petrokimya A.Ş. (PETKİM) facilities at Aliağa, Turkey.
The contracts cover overall front-end engineering design for
the new refinery and the license and basic design package for
the delayed coker, which will use Foster Wheelers delayed
coking technology. The planned new facility
will have a capacity of 214,000 bpd. Naphtha and fuel oil from
the hydrocracking unit will be delivered to PETKİM for petrochemical use. The refinery will
include crude and vacuum distillation units, naphtha
hydrotreating, a 40,000-bpd delayed coking unit, a 66,000 bpd
hydrocracking unit, kerosine and diesel hydrotreaters, LPG
caustic treatment units, a 28,000-bpd continuous catalytic
reformer, a saturated gas unit, an amine and sour water
stripper, sulfur and tail gas treatment units and a
160,000-Nm3/h hydrogen unit, as well as utilities,
auxiliary systems and offsite facilities.
CB&I has a contract valued in excess of
$70 million with Daewoo Engineering and Construction Co., Ltd. to
