Technip was awarded two contracts, worth a total value of about 50 million, for the front-end engineering design (FEED) services of two refineries in Kazakhstan, the company said on Wednesday.
The awards consist of the modernization of two out of the three existing refineries in the country, according to the company.
The first contract, awarded by Pavlodar Oil Chemistry Refinery, is an upgrading project of the Pavlodar refinery, which is scheduled to be completed in the second semester of 2013.
Meanwhile, the second project given by Petrokazakhstan Oil Product concerns the revamp of the Shymkent refinery, whose FEED documentation is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013.
The scope of both projects includes new and revamp process units as well as utilities and offsite facilities aiming to increase production capacity and conversion.
Technip's operating center in Rome, Italy, will execute both contracts.
