Fluor wins FEED work from BP, Shell for clean fuels project in South Africa

04.16.2013  | 

The project will enable a substantial upgrade of the SAPREF refinery, thereby improving the quality of transportation fuels by reducing levels of sulfur, benzene and aromatics and meeting enhanced legislative requirements. The deal allows for a possible EPCm contract to be signed at a later date.

Fluor was awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract by South African Petroleum Refineries (SAPREF) for its Clean Fuels II project in Durban, South Africa, officials confirmed on Tuesday. 

The undisclosed contract value was booked in the first quarter of 2013.

“This award builds on our significant clean fuels expertise as well as Fluor’s ongoing site support work with SAPREF in South Africa for nearly 20 years,” said Peter Oosterveer, president of Fluor’s energy and chemicals business.

This new contract will be the first to be executed in Africa under Shell’s enterprise framework agreement with Fluor that encompasses engineering and project management services throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The project will enable a substantial upgrade of the SAPREF refinery, thereby improving the quality of transportation fuels by reducing levels of sulfur, benzene and aromatics and meeting enhanced legislative requirements.

The agreement allows for the potential of an engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) contract to be signed at a later date.

SAPREF is a joint venture between Shell SA Refining and BP Southern Africa. It is the largest crude oil refinery in the region, representing 35% of South Africa’s refining capacity.

In refinery project for production of Hydrogen (inturn Synthesis Gas) from Natural Gas, should consider MIDREX (USA) reformer rather than conventional Steam-Methane Reformer (SMR0 or Auto thermal Reformer IATR). MIDREX reformer is more energy efficient when compare with conventional reformers
