Foster Wheeler has been awarded a contract by Abu Dhabi National Chemicals Co. (ChemaWEyaat) for project management consultancy services on an aromatics complex (Stage I of the Tacaamol project) and supporting infrastructure.

The aromatics complex will be located at the Madeenat ChemaWEyaat Al Gharbia site, east of the Ruwais industrial complex in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, project officials said.

The contract value for this project was not disclosed and will be included in the company’s first-quarter 2012 bookings.

The aromatics complex is planned to convert almost 3 million tpy of heavy and medium naphtha, supplied via pipeline from the Takreer Ruwais refinery, into paraxylene, mixed xylenes and benzene.

The infrastructure required to support the new complex includes a dedicated export tank farm, jetty and loading berth(s).

Foster Wheeler will, for the aromatics complex and infrastructure, provide project management consultancy (PMC) services for the front-end design (FEED) phase.

The contract also includes an option for Foster Wheeler to provide PMC services for the engineering, procurement and construction phase.

If ChemaWEyaat elects to award this additional work to Foster Wheeler, a separate and subsequent booking will be made, officials said.
