Amec awarded services pact for Kuwait refineries

12.09.2013  | 

Amec will be responsible for a range of engineering and management services including feasibility studies, front end engineering design, project management consultancy services and training of Kuwaiti engineers.


International engineering and project management company Amec was awarded a contract by Kuwait National Petroleum Co. (KNPC)  to provide project engineering and management services for the Mina Al Ahmadi, Mina Abdullah and Shuaiba oil refineries in Kuwait.

The five-year call-off contract, which has an optional one-year extension, is worth up to 72 million Kuwaiti Dinars (approximately £158 million). 

It was won in competitive tender and follows Amec's successful delivery of the previous contract held since 2007.

Amec will be responsible for a range of engineering and management services including feasibility studies, front end engineering design (FEED), project management consultancy (PMC) services and training of Kuwaiti engineers. 

The contract also involves providing studies and FEEDs to KNPC’s local marketing and projects department on a call-off basis for its in-country petroleum storage and transportation facilities

“I am delighted that KNPC have again selected Amec to deliver this important work," said Alan Armstrong, Amec's operations director in Kuwait. "This is a testament to our relationship since 2007 and our ability to apply our global design, engineering and project management expertise to deliver complex projects anywhere in the world." 

“These refineries and KNPC’s local marketing assets are strategically significant in Kuwait’s energy security and in providing revenues from their hydrocarbons exports," he added.

I'm fully interested to work in the company specially with my availability at anytime and I'm not just saying I worked in Equate Petrochem as the same location for familiarity of the place vicinities. I can ensure that this position is exactly for what I'm looking for this future to be open.
Best regards.

Very Truly Yours,

I am a teacher at Uludag University in Turkey. I like to work in this project. I worked with Amec as partner of a consortium of Ankara Natural Gas Conversion Project between 1988-1991 in Turkey. Could you give me an adress to contact them.
