Jacobs Engineering Group was awarded a contract from Afipsky
Refinery, located in the
Krasnodarskij region of Russia, to develop a basic engineering
package for an amine regenerator unit, a sour water stripper
and an expected 55 tpd sulfur recovery unit (SRU).
All three units are part of a refinery expansion project, which includes a
hydrotreater unit and a visbreaker unit.
Officials did not disclose the contract value.
The SRU design is based on Jacobs' proprietary
EUROCLAUS process and is being executed from Jacobs'
office in Leiden, The Netherlands, the company said.
Jacobs is working closely with the Moscow-based EPC
contractor, Giprogazoochistka, who is Russia's leading engineer
of gas treating units and SRUs.
Jacobs says it has designed approximately 450 units around
the world since 1985, including 15 SRUs in Russia and several
countries in the former Soviet Union.
We are proud to receive this new contract and look
forward to working with Giprogazoochistka to support Afipsky Refinery's important expansion project, said Jacobs vice
president Robert Matha.
